Real-Time Previewing

Without additional hardware, Final Cut Pro attempts to play back composites and transitional effects without rendering them first, depending on your hardware configuration. Again, the faster your setup, the more-reliable and more-complex real-time effects you can achieve. Depending on your computer's speed, you might have to render effects eventually to print them back to DV tape in any case if they are DV. Real-time (RT) effects are being done with capture card additions such as those from Aurora, Matrox, AJA, and Pinnacle. They might add real-time effects that you cannot achieve with RT Extreme alone.

If you click the RT button in the upper-left corner of the Timeline window, you can set your playback of real time to Unlimited RT. Using this to preview effects you've added to your sequence allows you to see them in real time as long as they are real-time effects with their names in bold.
