lies....I render/convert while live all the time...
mind you, I'm running some pretty ridiculous systems;
hex core i7 @ 3.8ghz
2x gtx 780 in SLI
32gb ram (going to upgrade to 64....after effects likes ram)
1tb SSD (media/render drive)
1tb Hdd (system/program drive)
HD/SDI Input card
I can easily run 7 hd outputs out of resolume + control monitor @ 50-60fps while converting content in AE without having issues or crashes....if I'm trying to render out an extensive AE project while running that kind of output content, the render goes REALLY slow, but realistically I'll never need to do that live. If I do, I'm really unprepared for a show....
Basically the better the system you put together, the better performance you're going to get, although the higher up you get the more expensive it is to get to the next level.
