Hey everyone thanks for hearing me out. So I have this huge project in my hands. I cut it on FCP 7 and now I need to send it to my colorist who uses avid on a PC.
I shot full 1080P on Sony F-900. Editing on Apple Pro Res 422.
2 hours and 23 minutes of footage (Ya I know! it's freaking huge)
I want to spit that out to an avid system on PC. More importantly, I need to put it on a hard drive and give it to my buddy who's driving 3 hours north to deliver this to my colorist in exactly 8 hours from now. lol
Here are my options:
1. I tried the export settings at none, that would take about 8 hours and my whole 1TB drive.
2. I could export quicktime movie pro res 422, which would take roughly 2 hours, but is that a good codec to export to avid?
3. I've downloaded the avid codec. But that's taking 5 hours and at 5% it's taken up 10 gigs.
