Hi all,

It's been a while since I've been editing a lot, and happy to be back on this forum.

I just got a GH5 and I just switched to Adobe Premiere Pro CC from FCP7. I have questions about basic workflow.

I shot in 8-bit H.264 1080 and my output has to be in ProRes 422.

I see that via Ingest I can create ProRes on the way in, but is that unadvisable for any reason?

Appreciate any advice.

it's advisable to transcode to a better editing codec if you don't have a very beefy machine (fast processor, gobs of RAM, high end graphics card with gobs of RAM) because editing H.264...decoding it on the fly...takes a lot of computing power. And the longer the project, the slower it'll get. So if you are on something like a laptop, or base iMac, best to convert. And know that the file sizes will increase 3-4 times what they are now.

Thanks Shane - and would you recommend using Media Encoder or are there known problems with that route? (Obviously I'm trying to cheap out and not buy a third party software.)

Media Encoder is fine, no need for third party software.
