I was curious about the head to head performance of rendering the two on Quad-core Xeon 3Ghz Mac Pro. I put a 28 sec clip of XDCAM 1080 50i in a 60i timeline (trying to approximate your situation requiring a render) hit render, it took around 23 seconds and the All CPU's reported 70%. I transcoded the same clip to Prores HQ and it rendered in 17 seconds with all the CPUs reporting around 55%. Note the transcoded file was 561.8 MB, the original XDCAM 133.6 MB.

Yeah bummer about FCP7 and 32-bit hu?
