If your master were to be prores 442, does the offline version have to be prores 442 proxy?
or can it be any format that suits your needs?

Obviously the frame rate has to match with the "parent" master clip.
How about aspect ratio?
8-bit/10-bit?
Is there anything else that can't be ignored?

first, check your disc space requirements. ProRes isn't that huge, and you might be able to NOT go to an Offline format.

there's a few disc space calculators out there. i use the free widget from DIgital HEaven

"does the offline version have to be prores 442 proxy?"

well you've got a few choices, ProRes LT is also an option.

in general i find it's better if you stick with the frame size of your master media.
again it depends on your disc space, but it is easier if you don't have to re-size things.


"8-bit/10-bit?"
not an issue, and ProRes is all 10 bit anyway
