Hardly ever now.
I’ve had background rendering turned off on FCP -X for the last 6 years or so and just let it happen during my Share cycle if it’s needed at all.
Most of my output is direct to or Vimeo Pro, so those will handle the versioning transcodes.
Maybe 30% of my work is now in 4K or above and sometimes I set my my Mac to do a large file Upload which involves rendering, but typically I just take a break and get coffee until it finishes.
I’m sure it would be a different story if I was typically doing lots of complex composites or lots of layers, but that’s an exception, not a rule for me.
So really, I haven’t even thought much about rendering for a few years now.
