Safe to use ProRes Proxy for the Web?
on Sep 6, 2011 at 11:47:10 pm

I have about 88 hours of footage (4 cameras @ 22 hours each) that I am doing a large multi cam edit on. Not all 88 hours into one piece but many small pieces. So far I have converted it all into ProRes Proxy for editing and I intended to reconnect it to ProRes LT when I was ready for export.
However since the end products are going to be on a website would it be ok to use ProRes proxy and just export from that? When I look at it after exporting to h.264 720p and uploading to youtube it is really not bad.
Or am I just going to be shooting myself in the foot by not reconnecting to the higher ProRes LT.
Am I just being lazy and cutting corners?

Or I guess I don't even need the proxy files right? I can just have everything as ProRes 422 LT and just edit those files.

ProRes Proxy has plenty of quality for web output. Do tests and see for yourself. That's the best way to judge...YOU look and see what you think.

Yeah. I just tested a proxy vs an LT and I really could not see a difference in most cases. And I think if we are finishing out to 720p for the web we should be good

You should be fine with Proxy. Go for it.
