[Oliver Peters] "There is a caveat to that if you work in Premiere, FCPX, or Resolve. If you render as you go (or cache in Resolve) and set your settings to the output codec (such as ProRes), then the export effectively becomes a file copy. You typically have to enable using this media in the export dialogue, but it can make the exports - especially in FCPX and Resolve - lightning fast, IF you are exporting to the same codec and settings.

- Oliver


But also, even if you've got background rendering turned off, if you're working with decent hardware, when you go to export a master, X is happy to grab all the computing resources it can in order to do the export as fast as possible. So "render the master during my coffee break while my machine is otherwise idle" is often a sterling strategy.

That's largely why I work nearly exclusively with background rendering turned OFF - at least unless I"m doing higher raster projects.
