Question about Mpegstream - DSLR workflow in Final Cut Pro.
on Aug 25, 2011 at 2:14:09 pm

Hello,

I wonder if anyone can help?
If i use Mpeg Stream clip to convert my DSLR clips to ProRes 422 Proxy, would there be a way in FCP to conform my Sequence to ProRes 422 (the way you can if you use Log and Transfer)?
or do i need to set Mpeg Stream to ProRes 422 from the start?

Thanks!!!

Have you considered using the Canon EOS Movie plugin to Log and Transfer the footage into FCP. This method converts camera data embedded in the footage to timecode and would make any re-connection to higher ProRes later much simpler as you'll get matching timecode.

Do a search for Shane's HDSLR Workflow tutorial on this site.

You don't need to use MPEG Streamclip. Just use the log and transfer. It conforms to ProRes. Just drop your clip on the timeline and it sets up your timeline automatically to ProRes for editing.

Thanks for the responses!

We've already used MPEG Steramclip to generate about 100 hours of ProRes Proxy. Would we be better off forgetting about that and redoing it all in Log and Transfer?

Thanks again.

If you plan on going with an online/offline workflow...yes. Doing it with MPEG STREAMCLIP (offline/online workflow) is VERY problematic. If you want smooth offline/online, gotta to it entirely in FCP.

No, you're fine with the footage already transcoded, but you'll be better off and it may be a bit faster using log and transfer. Final Cut is never great or time effecient in transcoding. Premier is so much faster.
