[Jeremy Garchow] "Again, this is an over generalization, but this process takes seconds/minutes in 7."

There are no free lunches ;-) You always have to pay the render tax at some point. Up front, in the middle, at the end. Pick your poison.

Remember that some of these PPro issues are because people are buying into the "edit native" hype. So they'll cut long-GOP H264 or RED files directly, because it's so easy to start out that way. Then in the end, the time savings catch up to you. The same situation ("conforming") occurs when cutting native HDV or even Canon XF footage in FCP7.

Some of this has become worse as we are embracing a file-based world. When everything was output to tape and you had real-time hardware, like Avid Nitris DX or Matrox Axio for Premiere Pro, you didn't have a lengthy export, because the hardware took care of this and it was real-time out to tape. Now you no longer have that advantage, because there's no such thing as on-the-fly, real-time effects when you are writing a a multi-codec timeline out to a single-codec "flat" file.
