[Tom Sefton] "For instance - I can play 6K r3d footage in FCPX at a lower quality setting. I can edit smoothly, apply a transition and finalise a cut. I can even create and edit multicam sequences that playback smooth enough. I've got some projects that include 40hrs of 4k r3d footage which is easily manageable."

That's great, a common refrain, which is why it is meaningless. Sure, you can playback that kind of footage when you're taking shortcuts with the debayering, but when it's all said and done, you still have to render it out, and if you're in crunch time mode, and that smooth playback turns into a 5 hour render, that's where things get messy. So what is the final render time like, especially with plugins added?
