I'm working on a documentary that currently has 12 TB of media, transcoded to ProRes 422, and we expect that amount to triple as the year progresses. We're started to balk at the cost of storage and back-ups, etc, and I'm wondering if it's possible to find a more economical codec solution as we move forward.

If we take the current media and convert it to ProRes proxy, will it break all of our links in our current timelines?

If we leave the current media as-is, can we bring in future media as proxy and mix codecs without a problem?

The only thing that makes me nervous about re-transcoding our current batch of clips, is that even if they'll relink, I'm worried that the team who did the original ingest may have set in and out points on some of the clips. If we re-did the ingest, we'd have every frame that was shot... but it would completely blow our timelines, re-links, etc. Nightmare. So we'd have to go from our existing ProRes 422 clips to ProRes Proxy, I'm guessing? Is that possible/easy/sane/good practice?

Working on FCP 7.0.3

Any suggestions?
Storage needs are getting out of control... switch codecs mid-project?

Sounds like it might be worth doing a test with a couple reels of material. What's the source of the original media You could try transcoding some footage and then seeing if you are able to take it of

I've shot with this hard disk recorder Sony HD Handycam a million times using all the same settings that we are using now and the log and transfer process has been smooth. Now when I transfer the clip

So, I'm pretty green to working with mixed formats and I'm cutting a large documentary that's incorporating all kinds of media. I did a couple of promos early on that I cut on a sequence set up for m

Yep, I imported footage that was mistakenly shot in 29.97 DVPRO HD (it should have been shot at 24fps). Then I mistakenly edited it on a sequence that was the PAL 1080i50 (!!!). Don't ask why. Now I w

I'd love a hard copy of the intensive sorting logging we are doing on our clips for the documentary I'm cutting. Is there any way I could print out my log notes, master comments, bin structure, etc I

my beef with transcriptions in fcp - warranted?
by Schureman Lear 12 years ago
Is it weird to anyone else that something as basic + essential to documentary filmmaking -- transcriptions -- should be completely unsupported within Final Cut I mentioned this to a more seasoned doc

Hi I find this approach interesting and am currently seeking a good workflow for my own very long form doco in which there are many 70 - 90 min IV's. One thing i cant wrap my head around though is how
