Welcome to Non-linear video editing, I haven't read up on Cinelerra but
it saves an xml file since while you are working in a project, you are
not touching your data. Outside of a *very* large computer, raw dv is
useless but every time you encode it, you lose quality. It would be a very bad
idea to encode each time you save, which would also make saves unbearably
long.

When you are done your "project" you then export(encode) it to a format
you so desire.

HTH,
