Save usually requires re-encoding portion of the original MPEG movie; this will be required when you
add transitions and when you mix different MPEG movies in the same list.
Since re-encoding involves MPEG encoding in software, a save can be a very time consuming process, especially when there are lots of transitions and special effects.
Because the editor does not limit your viewing of your edited result, you do not have to involve Save while you are working with the editor. To avoid a long delay or waiting, you can
save your editor session to a project file and load it back to Save it at a later time.
Since Version 3.04 (01/2000), the editor has added a new tool called "Batch Save Manager" for you to manage multiple editor save projects.
