A7sii in Premiere - Transcode or Native?
on Jun 29, 2016 at 5:33:06 am

Hi all,

New to Premiere and coming from FCPX.

I shot a short on the A7sii in 4K SLog3 at high ISO and am really happy with the results, but I want to maintain as much image quality as I can through post since I'm dealing with a less than ideal source in terms of bit rate and color space. I'm willing to sacrifice some ease of edit and/or storage space if it means the final image will be better. Editing on a Mac and will go through Resolve most likely for the color.

Are most of you creating new ProRes masters with EditReady and treating them as your new masters to the end? Is there any loss in quality vs editing with Native files from A7sii.

I'm scared of transcoding all my footage only to find out that in the end I would have less macroblocking or something like that if I just edited natively.

Thanks for your help!
