When you export a video, any changes you’ve made to the Start, Trim-In, or Trim-Out times determine how long your new exported video is compared to the original video that you inserted into your SONAR project.
Note: If you’re exporting an AVI file, the No Compression option in the Video Codec field of the AVI Encoder Options dialog box is a good choice. This choice does not change or compress your source video material. If you want your exported AVI file to be compressed, the Cinepak option will create an AVI file that plays back smoothly with decent quality. The MJPEG option will create an AVI file that does not play back as smoothly, but is a high quality format to archive a file in.
