Proxy Workflow and DNxIO
on Sep 24, 2018 at 1:34:29 pm

I would like to know how most folks here are handling proxy workflow in Premiere?
For years I have avoided it in Premiere due to my living in a RED eco-system.
I stick with the RAW format and my workstations are powerful enough for 4K playback.
However, the last job had me in a studio working with the Panasonic EVA-1.
They wanted to stick with Premiere and work in proxy mode.
I am a bit of a newb in Premiere as far as this workflow goes.
When I ingested and selected Proxy all seems to work fine.
But once in Premiere, the ingested files still state as the original RAW files from the EVA-1.
I know this cause there is an issue with their Avid DNxIO to Flanders which shows a purple clip when viewing anything over HD resolution. Now if I grab a clip from the project and drop on the sequence icon the settings seem to be 4K as well.
If I select the clip in the sequence and choose "reveal in finder" it seems to take me to the Proxy version.
I guess if they weren't having any issues with the 4K output to the Avid DNxIO this would be all moot.
If I change the sequence format to HD, then all the clips are cropped.
Using the Toggle Proxies button but does not allow a Proxy to determine Sequence size when drag and dropping.
My understanding is that once you create a Proxy at a specific size shouldn't you be able to create a sequence at that selected size?

I am beginning to suspect its the Flanders that's creating this issue with the DNxIO.
I will need to bring in another broadcast display for proof.

Had some time to tinker with this.
Both Avid and Premiere will not output to the Flanders using any formats higher than HD.
In Premiere, I can see that it's trying to output to 2K and in Avid 4K.
Stupid thing is that this works in FCPX.
Basically, FCPX will spit anything out in HD no matter what I throw out it.

Okay found the culprit.
The DNxIO has four SDI out ports.
No explanation as to which is which (3G, 6G, etc...).
For some reason, the first SDI Out port is not working as it should.
Of course, that's the one they were using.
It's all good now and all apps are working in 4K/2K mode via DNxIO and Flanders.
