Is there a way to show a company logo on screen without rendering ?

I have a project that I need to superimpose a company logo in the lower right corner of the tv screen.
Is there a way to creat a still image that would not need to be rendered.... the program is about 1 hour long and I think if I create the logo as part of a title.... the entire program may need to be rendered ?
How can I make a still image in photoshop with a transarent background and just lay if in one of the video tracks without the need to render....is it possible ?
or is there a web site for making titles and things like this in Final Cut

Just to add-
We incorporate a 'bug' with all of our programs and it's a 10-15min render for an hour. I use a pct file, not a PSD, so it's not rendering a nested sequence like it would with a PSD. It may not make any difference in render time, but it's a little cleaner. If you exporting to compressor, FCP doesn't need to render anyway, it would just add to the render time.
Tom is correct-system, drives, and software will matter. Back in version 3.5, it was an hour render for the same thing that takes 15 now.
Aja's new card has a live hardware HD/SD keyer for compositing bugs, so you can add it as you digitize-then it's already part of the video.
