By default, the basic render engine loads every source before rendering a project. This can result in a long start-up time. With dynamic reconnection, sources are loaded only when needed. This can shorten the start-up time, but possibly interfere with smooth playback. Generally, the more source clips that a project uses, the more you might benefit from dynamic reconnection.

The smart render engine does not implement this method.
