I think it comes down to whether the NLE designers take advantage of all the available compute power. Most NLE's take some advantage of QS, some use any GPU for effects or rendering. The latest discrete GPU's have a lot more power available than the Intel integrated GPU but I think only ADOBE takes advantage of that at the moment for timeline editing. Storage isn't that much of a problem these days so using an I frame only codec is not such a disadvantage. The problem with transcoding to HQX etc is the time, almost like ingesting tape !!! Starting with ProRes may be more convenient. Since my goal is to crop/pan/zoom into the UHD image I do need a smooth experience and that may be the way I have to go to make the editing process easy on me. I have been doing it for over 3 years now with the FDR-AX1 but only for portions of the edit relying on the other cameras for most.
