Archiving spots with Cleaner or Episode
on Nov 9, 2007 at 2:50:01 pm

Does anyone have any insight into proper settings to use for archiving media 100 edited spots as quicktimes using Cleaner or Episode? I back up all my projects and media externally, but sometimes it would be nice to have high quality quicktime movies saved on my hard drive that i could just pull up quickly to show clients or something.

Thanks

Well, if you have the Media 100 codec installed, you could compress the files as h.265 (in either cleaner or compressor) and get fantastic looking fairly small files.

But I wouldn't edit with them.

I've seen one or two workflows using alternate QT codecs that use lossless compression to shrink the file (and therefore still useful for editing)

Leave them as Media 100 clips. They'll play in Quicktime as long as you have the codec installed. You might save a bit of space transcoding to something like H.264 but it's unlikely to be worth the time and effort unless you want to make the clips totally portable.
