Best way for save and archive with FCPX

Hi Shane.
I was walking around and touched your post. I'm back tô the industry after 14 months away. It is só interesting to realize that a lot can change in a so short time ... lol
Well, I'm working with FCPX ( I love it) and I'm in a job that I will have tô digitalize 53 old tapes (VHS and VHS-C) and mix their material with some graphics and then burn DVDs and also prepare the final files tô be archived in an external HD. Since I am capturing the tapes with an old VCR via a kind of a "bridge", the Canopus Device ADVC 300 with FCPX optimizing the files as PRORES. It makes easy for editing and when I export it, I do it as it is (PRORES / FULLRES) to compress the file with Apple Compressor as MPEG2 and AC3 to make the DVDs.
Now, I was thinking in save and archive the final projects as PRORES, as it come from FCPX, or make a H264 out of them to save in the external HD.
What do you think about it ?

Thanks in advance.

Fredy.

[Fredy Schwerdtner] "to compress the file with Apple Compressor as MPEG2 and AC3 to make the DVDs."

What are you using for muxing and output that accepts those file types?


[Fredy Schwerdtner] "Now, I was thinking in save and archive the final projects as PRORES, as it come from FCPX, or make a H264 out of them to save in the external HD."

The primary difference obviously being file SIZE. If size is not a concern, simply go with ProRes. Otherwise I highly doubt that H.264 could make anything worse with VHS. Even H.264 is bound to retain all of its gory details without a problem. :D
