Vegas Rendering
I have a short 11 minute video set on my timeline, vegas 7, and have rendered a few different ways, I am wondering if the avi clips making up the timeline have suffered at all because of being rendered a few times. Cineform HDV Neo was used. Each successive dvd looks like it might have.

If I'm understanding you right you are just rerendering from the same original AVI clips on your timeline perhaps to an MPEG-2 file for DVD? In this case there will be no harm done to your original clips whether you render one or a thousand times. Now it's different if you render to a new file. And then render that new file to another new file etc. In that case you would start to see a quality hit but I think Neo is supposed to hold up pretty through ten renders or something like that but it also depends what format you render to.

Thats what I thought, but I did one render to hdv and when put on a dvd, it did look good, the next one was after I added more, to make it larger, now the second one was crap. I understand cineform is pretty solid.

I'm just entering the HDV realm so I'm not sure how everything works. When it comes to rendering straight AVIs files in the same format as your original what I said applies.

Good luck,
