    It really depends on your setup, but for the most part, yeah. Rendering is a beast. I think it is just best to get into a routine of rendering every once in a while. If you render all the time, you are going to end up waiting around a lot.

    Eventually you will get to the point to where you know what the results will be without have to render, and it will save you some time.

    Boy, it just depends on sooooo many things. The gear you're rendering with is obviously one of them. But the amount of data you're working with is also a huge factor. Things like long clips, high-res clips, buttload of audio and video layers, lots of effects and transitions, etc., all contribute to how much time it takes to render.
