Use Proxy Files for some but not all clips
on Jul 30, 2011 at 8:01:34 pm

I have some 1080/60p footage that I want to edit into a 1080/30p timeline with some other 30p footage. All my 30p footage is native h.264 to save hard drive space since it plays back fine in FCP X. I've had FCP X create Proxy files of my 60p h.264 files since it can't play back the 60p footage smoothly. My question is:

Can I tell FCP X to just use the Proxy files of certain clips? It seems as of now it's an all-or-nothing approach to proxy files meaning that if I turn on use Proxy files in the preferences it makes all my 30p footage offline since I don't have any proxy clips made for those. So the only option is to have FCP X make proxy files of all my clips which defeats the purpose of editing natively. It'd be great to have a "per clip" option of what media FCP X references in different projects.

I know the work-around is to transcode everything but was hoping to save some space using native files for smaller projects.
