I know that your clock and RAM have the biggest impact, but...


Let's say I exported a full HD ProRes file out of FCP X via FCP (current settings)....and I have two drives to work with when I will be compressing that file.  My system is on my internal SSD and the FireWire 800 and Thunderbolt drives are empty.  Would I export that file to the FW and process the file (compressor) from there to the TB or vice versa? Any effect from the read/write, I/O?


Does it matter at all?


Just wondering...thank you.
