Is there an easy way to edit when you have lots of text subtitles in a timeline?

I'm editing a scene that has lots of translation. If I move a subtitle, I need to render everything all over again. Is there any way I can edit, move things around, and not need to constantly re-render to watch my scene in the timeline with the subtitles (I know I can black out that track and then watch it all without subtitles. That's what I do now. I'm trying to go beyond that if I can.)

Make them basic...no drop shadow or anything fancy.

Fast drives.

More than 4GB RAM...FCP uses 4GB, so have 8GB or 12...16...

Then they should be green, and you can play without rendering.

Yeah, I do all the DROP SHADOW adding later. You can remove them in one fell swoop if you have it activated in the MOTION tab. Just remove that attribute from all the text at once. Add it back later...

Another thing you can do if you can't get your speed up enough (sometimes even a faster system can choke on them based on the footage and effects you may have under the text) is get your subtitles in place and lock that track. Then cntrl-click on the text and select deactivate clip. Once everything is done, turn em back on and render.

Just a thought as I had to do that on an older machine/job.

another thing you can do to speed things up is to delete your render files (making your timeline unrendered) and then go to Sequence/Settings/Render Control and make your Resolution 25%.
Edit and Render as you please at this lower rez. Then when you are done just delete any render files and re-set your resolution back to 100% and render the final product.
