Great question! She did need to render it. When she dropped the 3D Cube Spin onto the edit point between the two shots, the top of the timeline ruler was just out of frame so that you can't see it. If it had been in the frame you would have seen a little red line just above that transition indicating that it needs to be rendered. (She must have rendered it just before the video cuts to wider shot of the same section). I hope this helps clarify rendering.

Hi MrBass, When you add a transition between two clips on your timeline, you are telling Final Cut to create something there. The computer needs to create a new piece of media just for that transition so that it can play. This is called rendering. If you make any changes to the rendered file, you'd need to re-render it since a new piece of media with your change will need to be created again.
