|1. Open the Epic Control Panel
2. Set the options as described in our QuickStart Guide, then start Sony Vegas Pro 9.
3. In Sony Vegas Pro 9, when you drag H.264 clips into the timeline and assemble your rough cut, Epic I automatically prepares for realtime playback in the background. Once it's ready the playback instantly becomes real time for that clip.
4. When you are finished with your edit you simply click the Roman Column (see far left) to High Quality and you can then export to DVD, Blu-Ray, or to whatever is your final format.
5. You can also use the Vegas "Preview Half" and "Preview Full" modes to switch back and forth between real time and High Quality.
