[Bret Williams] "I used reference files that apps like AE or DVDSP were often trying to search for render files that were gone."

True enough.. FCP are not good long term. We use them in conjuction with our Episode engine to offload flattening or encoding, after which they are deleted. Besides saving the editor time it allows quick re-dos.

[Bret Williams] "Now we don't have to spend the time transcoding to ProRes, so there's the time saving on the front end."

True again… but we find saving time on the back end far more valuable. It takes time for all the media to accumulate, time we use to encode to ProRes and tag with embedded metadata. As a project proceeds, workflow pipelines start sprouting invoking other apps, and the final timeline gets more complex as the deadline nears. It's all this later work we strive to lubricate so there are fewer issues and renders as deadline pressure and project complexity increases.
