    If I render a 2 hour mpeg2 file, and split it in half using Tmpgenc, will
    the two halves still be DVD compliant? I just makes more sence to put 2
    DVDs worth of video on the Vegas timeline and render them both as one video
    over night, then split them apart and burn them on 2 DVDs. Do you think DVD
    Architect will try to re-render if I do this?

    I don't know about that, but if Vegas works the way Premiere does, if the
    splitting requires rerendering, there's a simple solution:

    After your DVD file is rendered, import it into the timeline and split it,
    then render each segment separately. Now, if this works the way Premiere
    does, there won't be any actual rendering or recompression going on, just a
    simple file transfer with headers tagged on to it.

    It shouldn't take more than an hour to copy each hour-long part, but if your
    disks are particularly fast it could take even less.
