Hi all. I am having issues with my workflow and am hoping someone can steer me in the right direction.
I am editing in FCP 6 and using AE CS4 for keying with Keylight. My sequences in FCP are in Pro Res 422. I had been exporting from AE in the animation codec as I was under the impression I would lose the least quality...however, as I expected, FCP can't handle that codec and and constantly freezes, etc...
Can I export from AE in Pro Res 422? Am I going to lose much quality, or any at all? This footage was shot with the Sony EX3 and will ultimately be output from FCP in a self contained Quicktime so as to be transferred to HD Cam.
Any help as to best workflow/pointing out mistakes would be greatly appreciated.
