ProRes422 or LT Export? What
on Feb 24, 2011 at 4:53:11 pm

I have A Macbook Pro Running With Final Cut Pro. Canon 7D.
I Have Imported My Footage Via Tapeless Format Using Pro Res 422. Should I Use Pro Res LT Instead?
Once I Have Done This I Try To Edit A Simple Color Change Or Clip + The Render Still Takes Ages..

Even After It Finishes Rendering My Footage Doesnt Come Out The Way I Shot It.

1.What Settings To I Change...To Render Easily?

2. What Settings Do I Use To Export The Best Vimeo or Youtube DVD Quality I Can Get.

3. I Just Want To Know What Everyone Else Is Doing... Simple... 7D Like Majority... Final Cut Pro....Mac OsX....Why The Eff Is This So Complicated... lol

4 What Settings Do I Change! I Basically Want The Best Quality I Can Get!
Someone make a tutorial instead of sitting on these forums....

All these questions can be answered with a simple search on these here forums... but to get you started:

1.) I don't know how much easier it gets than hitting CMD R to render. =) ProRes 422 LT only renders slightly faster than ProRes 422. I personally transcode my 5D/7D stuff to ProRes 422 as it gives me a bit more information to work with when doing color-corrections and effects. Also, the faster your computer is the faster the renders, so if you're using an old MacBook Pro is will be slower. But Final Cut is still a 32-bit app so renders aren't incredibly faster with newer boxes, but every bit helps I guess.

2.) The YouTube Compressor setting is a great place to start. Again, search around on here for various recipes.

3 and 4.) Search away as this has been covered a million times on here. And I've yet to meet an editor who's said, "You know what, I don't want the best quality, just average will do." There is no one answer for this as it depends on your workflow (camera, deliverable spec, time, money, your mood).
