Just curious, what video format do you use when you want to export a rough cut of an HD video the fastest way possible? On Final cut pro? I thought that by exporting smaller size frames, such as 480×270 pixels, I would get a faster output, but not really. Of course, I use a single pass, lowest quality, but any advice apart from that is welcome.
I feel your pain exporting really only gets faster with better hardware, but there are settings you can use that will improve speed in some formats. This article might be what your looking for: http://www.larryjordan.biz/fcpx-5-export-tips/
As for me I just use my gaming rig and play on my laptop while I wait.
Best of luck,
