    Output file versus number and length of clips in comp

    MontePorche

      I was wondering about how AE processes information, and renders it's output.  I'm creating a DVD menu for a TV series that I've been recording, and I want to use some clips from the show in my menu. Here's what I'm wondering...

       

      If I import a few clips that are episodes of the show (around 44 minutes long), and trim those clips to 5 seconds, and then render that out....would I end up with a similarly sized output file as if I had clipped out the 5 second clips, and then imported only the 5 second clips?

       

      In other words, when AE renders a video, is the outpout only based on the actual video that is rendered?  Or does the length/filesize of the imported clips factor in as well?
