Sorry about the late reply,
Two reasons for exporting a self-contained Q/T for use in Compressor:

1. I like a self-contained Q/T export to save as a master.

2. It probably works just as well to directly export to Compressor,
but I got in the habit years ago when - for some reason that I never figured out -
I could not directly export from FCP to Compressor, Compressor just would not

all the best,

with harddrive space being one of the factors where prices drop since decades, I see no reason NOT to work in ProRes. My first 1 GB SCSI drive in 1989 was 1k$ ! now I get 1 terabyte for 1/10.

The reason I ask is I too am working on a old-ish G5 SP 1.8 set-up.

Aside from the fact that it takes about 20 hours to conform on export.

That's because you are not editing in native HDV, your using AIC (Apple Intermediate Codec).
