Can I change an already rendered file?

I rendered 6 different videos, and now want to change them to widescreen, can I just pull them onto the timeline in a new project and re-render them to widescreen.
Project properties were:HDV 720-30p, and want to change to:NTSC DV Widescreen.
Rendered them to: NTSC DVD, and want to change to: DVD Architech NTSC Widescreen.
I hope I can do this otherwise have to start from scratch.

It's possible to re-render the NTSC DVD videos to DVD Widescreen but you'll get quite a quality loss, as the 4:3 video is probably already letterboxed to be even smaller than the widescreen template will give you.
It's better to render from your 720p videos, since they are already 16:9 widescreen and they are higher quality.
Even better is to render from your original project to the DVD widescreen format.
