      Leapin’ Lizards! I just did some speed tests of renders – Results are
      posted below, but I will not waste time fully upgrading to Pro 11.

      The advertised speed upgrades from Pro 9 to Pro 10 were fairly
      minimal in practice, but they definitely found out how to harness GPU
      power in Pro 11.

      1. First I took a fully edited and color corrected (short) wedding
        ceremony I did earlier this month. My source files were about 75% HDV
        (as 25Mb/s .m2t files from my Z5U) and about 25% AVCHD (as 17Mb/s .MTS
        files from my NEX5). My destination file was a 16Mb/s .m2ts (AVCHD)
        file I use to compile blu-ray discs with.
      • Project Length: 0:21:32 Time to Render from mixed AVCHD and HDV sources: 1:32:27
      • Using Vegas Pro 11:
      • Project length: 0:21:32 Time to render from mixed HDV and AVCHD sources: 0:43:31
      • I would guess that if I had straight cuts and not dissolves this
        would be a MUCH faster render as it stutters a bit with every dissolve
        transition. In any case it was still over 2x faster to render with
        Vegas Pro 11.

      2. Second I did a render from one minute unedited clips.

      • Source file for clip 1 – AVCHD (as 17Mb/s .MTS file from my NEX5) and destination file was a 16Mb/s .m2ts file (AVCHD)
      • Using Vegas Pro 10:
      • Project Length: 0:01:00 Time to Render from AVCHD to AVCHD: 00:03:01
      • Using Vegas Pro 11:
      • Project Length: 0:01:00 Time to Render from AVCHD to AVCHD: 00:01:19

      3. Lastly I did another render from one minute clips:

      • Source file for clip 2 – HDV (as 25Mb/s .M2T file from my Z5U) and destination file was a 16Mb/s .m2ts file (AVCHD)
      • Using Vegas Pro 10:
      • Project Length: 0:01:00 Time to Render from HDV to AVCHD: 00:02:55
      • Using Vegas Pro 11:
      • Project Length: 0:01:00 Time to Render from HDV to AVCHD: 00:01:17

      This is starting to be almost rendering at triple speed in Vegas Pro
      11 compared to Pro 10 – in fact it seems that AVCHD is well on the way
      to be able to be rendered in close to real time. If I had the newest
      graphics cards out there, it just might happen. It was not long ago
      that rendering DVD .mepg files took far longer than real time to render,
      and do not worry about those in Vegas Pro 11. Vegas Pro 11 will create
      your 720×480 MPEGs at 3x-4x real time!

      For reference, my graphics card is a nVidia 1GB GTX285 – a dinosaur compared to the newest nVidia cards!

      As for playback during editing, from the amount of time I have been able to use it (have not done a complete project on it yet), the preview seems to actually be able to stay at “Full” rather than having to keep resorting to “Half” like Vegas 10 always did to get the video to play smooth with a couple effects added.

      I forgot to mention an important detail. Both versions I was comparing (Vegas 10 Pro and Vegas 11 Pro) were both 64-bit versions – so this is not a 32 bit to 64 bit comparison, it is truly 64 bit to 64 bit comparison.

      I upgraded my GPU to a GTX 580, and now it renders the entire ceremony referenced above fully edited and color corrected in 00:29:42 (Vegas Pro 10 64-bit took 1:32:27 to render). Sick…
