Avoid rendering when using custom sequence settings
on Jul 4, 2011 at 3:11:45 pm

Usually, you can avoid the notorious red bar above your sequence by setting the RT to UNLIMITED RT. But now I have to play with a custom size sequence, with two video tracks (one 720x576 PAL and one 1024x768 ProRes 422) interliving (one is on the left, while the other one is on the right). Is there a way to avoid the red bar and to work with the sequence without rendering every single frame?

Nope. RT Extreme is the tech that FCP uses to preview real time playback of unrendered effects. However it only works with standard vidoe frame sizes.

Could you Edit natively, then resize the final edit? That would allow you to not have to render during the editorial process... until the end.

The two video tracks have to be synchronized (one contains a lecturer, the other one a screen capture). How would you suggest to deal with it?

What is the delivery format? DVD? web stream? or?

Web stream, if that helps.

In order to avoid rendering, one of the two formats needs to be transcoded to match the the other. Since it's just a web stream, I'd suggest you down rez the larger files to the same codec used in the smaller ones.

You could then even use multicam to edit the two streams with. Can't use it unless the clips are of the same format exactly. You could try up rezing the smaller files, but it may result in too much artifact being introduced. Either way, the only way to avoid rendering is getting the two streams to be the same format, codec, frame rate...

Good one, Jerry.
That's a solution right there!
I second that, sounds most reasonable.
