render time

I'm making a movie with text that crawls across the screen. When I change anything, even a period I have to re-render that whole section plus the one that preceeds it. Any tips how to make this process move quicker?

get a faster machine ; )

you are creating a new final product when you change something. and anything it contacts will simply have to be re rendered - just a nature of the beast

Would it be any faster if i hooked up my laptop and my tower?

No. FCP does not distribute rendering to other machines.

If you are changing just one part of a small segment, wouldn't making a razor cut on either side of that portion (before you change it) make it an independent clip that only needs to rendered rather than rerendering everything including the "section that precedes it"?

What a great suggestion! Thanks.
