Hi

Just a quick question - will i loose any detail/ quality if i transcode 50mbps XDCAM 422 clip to ProRes HQ. I know the pro res has a much higher bit rate but is it better just to go with the native XDCAM? (50mbps is more than enough)

Thanks in advance!

Paul

What's your reason for going to ProRes? Editing format? Compatibility with other editors/vfx? Standard workflow practices?

You don't really lose any quality, but you also don't gain any either. So unless you have a specific reason or need to transcode to ProRes there's nothing wrong with XDCAM.
