Hi All. I currently have a finished edit in a timeline in FCP that I cut using the _M proxy files. 80% of the shots are 2k 2:1 120fps. There are a few 4K 2:1 shots as well. My current sequence is 512x256 ProRes because that seemed to work well enough to cut with. The cut is locked and now I want to ONLINE.
Ideally, I would love to take my cut and bring it to RedCine and color correct shot by shot in there and export a 2K Master from there.
OR, I am happy to ONLINE in FCP, I just don't know how to get to up-res. Maybe I can just replace my _M Proxies with _F proxies and color correct in Color? Or even Magic Bullet Looks.
Ultimately, this is going to be exported to HQ Vimeo and YouTube....so I'm not insanely picky about all of the particulars. I just need a simple way to upres, and color correct my edit.
I ended up highlighting all of my _M clips in the timeline, and reconnected them with the _F proxies by unchecking "matched filename" in a 2K ProRes HQ Sequence. Exported out a QT from there and treated it as my UnColorcorrected Master. I brought that back in to FCP and adjusted color with FCP 3 Way Color Corrector.
I understand this is not really an IDEAL workflow....but it worked and it all looks great.
