      I have Elements 11.

      Is it advisable to Render while a project is in-progress (thus doing so multiple times), or wait until it is finished?

      Thanks.

          You render when you want to see the best possible preview of the Timeline content as played by in the Edit Mode monitor.

           

          It is your opportunity to catch a problem sooner than later.

           

          It is especially important previewing of effects, transitions, and non native formats.

           

          You probably know that already, but...

           

          Generally speaking and depending on the project, I would probably opt to determine what I have during the project  and build on that, rather the wait until I think that I have finished all and was ready to move on to disc menus - Publish+Share choices.

            As ATR points out, Rendering is just for getting the smoothest playback.

             

            I do many Projects, that never get Rendered, prior to output. However, those are Projects where the Source Footage matches the Project's Preset 100%, and do not have many intricate Effects in them.

             

            OTOH, I have some, where I AM using intricate Effects, and I might end up doing a Render of that portion of my Timeline many, many times, until I am 100% satisfied. I limit the area to be Rendered with the WAB (Work Area Bar), so that I am not Rendering any other parts of my Timeline.

             

            This article goes into just a bit more detail on using the WAB to limit the area to be Rendered: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/794719 and there is a link to a WAB article, near the end.

             

            Good luck,
