Quickest render-out format?

Quick question - is there a format - even if it's "uncompressed" or YUV - which will render video close to or faster than real time on Vegas, that I can then pump out through Badaboom for the final product? This may be a faster workflow than rendering to H.264/AVCHD directly from Vegas.

Any "simple" AVI type should do. HuffYUV or Sony YUV should get you what you want. As for realtime or near real-time, that depends on your computer.

So far, Badaboom hasn't accepted any of the AVI files I have tried to encode. It definitely won't open YUV, HuffYUV, Lagarith, DV or MJPEG AVI files. It will open MPEG2, H.264, HDV, AVCHD, MPG1, VC-1, DivX and WMV.

Bah, then screw it. 4cores is enough for me right now. If I need to, I'll get some network rendering going with another 4-core computer.

Looked at the product page, seems to only accept highly compressed formats. Not the most useful product for this.

I've had nothing but trouble with Sony;s network render service. Some times you may not even be able to use multiple cores on a network render job (due to license restrictions.... aka Sony wants more money) so throwing a network render system at the job may not actually help you at all. YMMV
