Hi all I have a job coming up and the footage was all shot on the Sony F900.
The footage is being transfered to Hard drive then turned over to me for the editorial.
Here is my system:
8 core MacPro, OS 10.5.6
8 gigs ram
Final cut 6.0.5
Decklink HDPRO EXTREME Single link
CalDigit HDone Raid
I need to know what codec/compression will work best wt my system
and retain the best quality from the F900 look and to still be able to edit smoothly
(multiple video and audio streams). I need to pass the information on to the
people doing the capture and transfer to HDD.
So am I looking at 4.2.2 10-bit , 4.2.2 8-bit uncompressed 1080 ?
My card is a single link and my RAID is not optical, so, I guess 10-bit 4.4.4 is
probable out of the question.
I don't want to go as highly compressed as DVCPRO HD and would like to do the edit
as a final online back to HDD and DVD.
