using Pro Res Proxy in Final Cut Pro 6?

Anyone had any luck with the new pro res proxy in FCP 6 or am I SOL? It will play alright, but no multiclip playback, real time rendering options, etc...

That codec was designed for FCP 7. It is built to recognize and deal with that codec. FCP 6 is not. It won't work properly in FCP 6. Either upgrade to FCP 7, or use a codec that is compatible with FCP 6.

[Tim Seley] "Then why make it available in an update?"

What? I don't get what you mean. ProRes Proxy is available in an update to the Studio package...FCS3 that includes FCP 7. A paid upgrade. You don't get it when you do a simple update of FCP 6.0.x to something like 6.0.6. It isn't part of an FCP 6 update.

I didn't buy FCS3 but I've definitely got the new Pro Res options.

Are you the only one with access to that machine? Because people on these forums ask questions like yours, and people actually suggest "just copy the codecs from FCP 7 to FCP 6 and there you go!" And they show up, but there is no RT with them, and they are problematic. Perhaps someone did the same on that machine?

I saw a couple posts with that info, but nope its just my laptop. And I haven't installed anything manually. My guess was that it was installed with a compressor or QT update. Maybe the update was really geared more towards simple playback instead of full on usage?

What a perfect response, took me one go to find this and my answer!

Will stick with OFFLINE RT HD Codec in FCP6.

Does anyone know a way to convert ProRes proxy to anything else without having FCP7/FCS3??? QT 10 will read the files and allow FCP6.x to transcode them but, what if you did not have Snow Leopard or FCS3? Then what? Can Avid read ProRes Proxy with new AMA? What about Premiere or Vegas. Ouch!

To view ProRes movies, even Proxy, all you need is QT 7.6. That has the decoder built in. Any machine running QT 7.6 will be able to view ProRes movies. So you should be able to convert to another format from that.

And yes, Avid touts that Media Composer 5.0 can read and work with ProRes Proxy files. But that version isn't out yet.

I just got my drive full of ProRes (Proxy) files for a short film shot on RED. Since I'm on a G5 running FCP 6.0.6. It's a little problem.

Despite having a pretty explicit discussion with the guy who prepped the footage, I've got to deal with this. His continuing to suggest i upgrade to FCP 7 is testing my sanity. They play ok. I truly believe this mis-understanding was both our faults.

Files play ok, sometimes have to hit play 2X. I have this orange render bar though, dissolves seem to happen on the fly. My hinting that he should do it over isn't working.

Choices:

1.Scream and Cry until he (Colorist) does it over.
2.Work with the ProRes(Proxy) files, and hope it always works.
3.Media manage all the media, with these two variations.
a. eff you jerk, and your meta-data. Online this MF.
b. Edit in my transcoded files, and then replace the files with his (Colorists) ProRess (proxy) files.

Thoughts, solutions I'm not aware of?

3b sounds like a good option. BTW, wouldn't your colorist grade the r3d files anyway? So what does it matter what format you cut in? Why not transcode to what ever works for you and reconnect that media to his clips with his metadata?
