run away rendering - which codec are you using?
on Jul 9, 2008 at 11:10:03 am

I'm doing a long project on 1080P with EX1 and have several timelines for different scenes. When I walk away from the computer it is always "writing video" when I come back. Huge render files under the hood. I've tried both the xdcam 1080P 23.98 project setting and just letting Final Cut choose the set ups, as well as using 'prores422'. All of them like to render...

So far working with EX1 footage in general seems "render happy", just loves to sit there all day regenerating and peopling my limited drives with endless FIN files. Anyone tame this beast?

Are you using the XDCAM EX format or something else? As long as all of your material is shot and sequenced in the same format, and you have a system up to spec you shouldn't be rendering much at all. Also I wouldn't suggest nesting a bunch of sequences together, especially if they have a lot of effects or audio, that could be part of the issue. Put everything on one timeline with as little nesting as possible.

To avoid automatic rendering you have 2 options.
1. keep editing
2. change the auto render option finalcutpro/user prefs/general => right bottom corner (i think)

for straight editing with limited diskspace stay in the native resolution for as long as your processors can keep up.

hope it helps
