NO

When rendering in Vegas, choose AVI as the type and Default (Uncompressed) as the template. Uncompressed should be a separate setting in AE as well.

Is there a particular uncompressed AVI format that will save time ?
DV is YCrCb, right ? But does VEGAS do its internal processing (video effects) in YCrCb or RGB ?

There is only one uncompressed format. So pick uncompressed if it is listed
in the program. Otherwise choose "none" when you need to select a codec
(AVI is a file format, not the codec).

That's a pretty good question.. if you want to do effects or compositing work after the fact, is it better to be using a YUV format or an RGB format (in After Effects for example)?

Lossless DV Codec

Try this codec. Saves a bit more space over uncompressed and is lossless in terms of quality.

Don't know if there are any issues with AE, but I've used it flawlessly with Combustion 4

Huffyyuv 2.1c works well for .avi stuff, microcosm for quicktime is 64 bit lossless.
