Yes, the rendering is the real time killer. I haven't used Brorsoft, so I have no idea of the quality. Chances are there's not much of a time savings, but it depends on what output you are trying to render to. I've found some compressors that work great with one codec (like MPEG-2) but not be any quicker with others. So you might find one compressor that works better with the favor of video output that you are looking for. As to the quality, it shouldn't matter which compressor software you use. The output codec should dictate the quality. You will be fine using Sorenson or Streamclip, Compressor is great if you want to access some of the features like the Frame Conversion or setting up chapter markers for DVDs, but if you don't need it, then there's no benefit.

Good Luck,
