Hi All,
So I'm trying to convert my 2k dailies into 422 prorez files to edit in FCP7
I'm sending each clip to compressor and it gives me an extra 4 blank tracks… what am I doing wrong?
Also I tried using a droplet but I can seem to make FCP "see" it when I send out to compressor.
Camera:Alexa
Hardware: FCP 7 with macbook pro(late2011) lion x /2-4tb G-Raid drives.
Initial creation of dailies:
In browser I had my dailies arranged in sequences by scene i.e. sc.1 had it's own sequence,Sc.2,Sc.3 etc.
Since I needed and wanted to work with individual clips I linked/copied/pasted each take and made a clip.Each clip copied the exact number of trks.
Big Thanks
