Watch out for this gotcha

I don't know if this qualifies as a bug, but it's unexpected behavior.

While I'm working on a project I usually do pre-renders at NTSC Draft quality to save time, then at the end of the project do a render to normal or Best NTSC quality. However, it turns out that when doing the final render to a new track, if there are sections which were prerendered as NTSC Draft, those sections will not be re-rendered at the higher quality. So you'll end up with good quality interspersed with poor quality. I experienced this several times, but never knew what was going on until now.

i'd e-mail tech suppt on this one. Sounds like a small bug.

Whoa! I've never heard of that.

I experienced that in v4 last year. Haven't tried it in v5.

I used the "Clean up prerendered video" before any final rendering to get rid of the old renders.

If you want to flush all your project prerenders, just add a video track.
Poof, gone.
BTW, you are close to realizing a major trick to faster project renders.
Good and Best as needed, preview for everything else.
