[Bret Williams] "Well, not if it wasn't rendered you couldn't. And the audio always had to be recompressed. It didn't reference audio. A 1hr video would had taken a little bit just for the audio alone."

Correct… In our case all media is converted to ProRes so no rendering except transitions, titles, etc. Yes it does flatten the audio, no re-compression though. Even with nothing rendered a ref movie takes less than 5min to create typically. There's no way around render time. One pays that price whether ref or self contained.

Apple wants to kill because of security concerns. Basically the treat of a ref mov pointing to suspect files. Not sure how a FCP xml or any project file from any media app which points to source files is any safer.
