Offline Multiclip Editing
on May 13, 2011 at 5:50:56 pm

Hello Everyone,

I've established that my computer can't handle multiclip with 3 angles at 1080p. Is there a way to scale down the quality so that I can edit, then scale it back up at the end? I've heard "offline editing" mentioned several times but have never had it explained. Might this method work? And if so, what is it?

Thanks!

-Graham

Here's a tutorial on how to make offline clips with online media, and then reconnect later:

If you didn't import the footage in ProRes Proxy, do you have to re-import or is there a way to convert it?

Oh... And ProRes Proxy doesn't show up in my sequence settings menu. Is there a plugin I have to download?

If you are running FCP 6, you won't have ProRes Proxy. What version do you have?

Yup. You're exactly right. Version 6.0.4. Is there a different codec I could use?

Well, the issue you will run into now is that any other codec won't be full sized...won't match the pixel dimensions of what you have now. So any graphics and moves on stills will have to be redone. If you use DV...720x480...that's a lot smaller than 1920x1080. But, it was an offline codec a lot of people used. And Offline RT as well...that's even smaller. Those are options, but just know, redoing graphics work will have to occur.

Hi,
I have the same problem, so I tried your tutorial (the second part, since I store videos directly on the Hard Drive).
I need to edit 720p@24 fps videos taken with 3 cameras: 2 nikon d5000 and 1 jvc hm100.
I converted everything to ProRes HQ, also because the video taken with the jvc was @50fps, I had to reduce it to 24. I'm editing with FCP 6.0.6.
I stored the files on an external WD firewire hard drive, and I used media manager to make offline RT HD @24 versions of the ProRes originals, then edited in multicam. I saved the Offline vids in a folder on the same disk, as it's the only one I have.
Everything works, I go through multiclip edit perfectly, except when I relink the ProRes videos to export in High Resolution. At that moment the videos become oversized, and they exceed the Sequence resolution. I also get an error message when relinking the online media, saying that the A/V inputs are different.

What would be a nice solution?
