I just started working on a RED project in FCP 7. So far, the RED media was transcoded to ProRes 4444 and sunk with the production audio, however it has just now come to light that this codec might not bode well for playback on some of my teams workstations due to the large file size. My question: is it possible to down convert the 4444 media to ProRes LT and relink the sunk production audio? Also, will down converting cause any problems with reconforming to the RED media later on?
Any guidance in how to implement this process would also be much appreciated.
