Bouncing to audio in Ableton, or Pro Tools?

I started using Ableton to make my tracks where before I was using Reason with Pro tools. With Reason I just Rewired in Pro Tools and bypassed the mixer (as it's known that it doesn't sound great). Then I recorded all audio within Pro Tools.

Now, with Ableton, I can't rewire Ableton because it's using some of the same plugins/vsts that Pro tools is trying to use. So I would have to move all the plugins that Pro tools and Ableton are both using from the Plugins folder to the Unused Plugins folder. I don't want to do that because I have a million beats that I use Pro tools plugins in and not only that, there are effect plugins like Sound Toys that I may want to use in both simultaneously.

That said, will the sound quality be affected if I record to audio in Ableton then just import the Audio tracks into Pro tools? Or is it better to Rewire a program into Pro tools and record to audio in Pro tools?

There should not be any sound difference between the two programs (Pro tools & Ableton)

It won't matter.

Personally I use ReWire Only when I'm creating a heavily layered sound like strings, brass, etc. Then I export it to wav and get to working in my main daw and stop rewiring.
