Last year in one of the  “under five minute” presentations it was stated that with the latest upgrade to compressor it was an advantage to use this rather than the render option in FCPX., Is this still the case if you are using FCPX and compressor on the same machine. If so could you explain why.


My machine is the late 2015  4GHz iMac with 16GB RAM and the AMD Radeon R9 M395X graphics




Since FCP 10.1, it is no longer necessary to use Compressor for rendering speed alone. FCP X is now equal in its ability to quickly render out content
