Convert DVCPRO to ProRes within FCP
on Nov 13, 2012 at 12:54:56 am

Hi,

I'm setting up a large project in FCP. There is footage I need to create multicam clips with. However, the footage in FCP is DVCPRO and ProRes 422. FCP wont let me make multiclips with the different formats.
Having already imported 50+ hours of footage, and taken up over 8TB of hard drive space, is there any way to quickly/easily/using as little hard drive space as possible, convert the DVCPRO footage to ProRes 422? Preferably within FCP using the Media Manager tool?

I would greatly appreciate any help with this.

Thanks!

Also worth noting is that I will want to relink to the original raw media when the project has been edited. So I need a way to do the above, while keeping the original metadata intact.

Will your multicam project allow you to re-link to a footage with different specs?

Lie all the DVCPro stuff on sequences and use MM.
I would better try MPGStreamclip batch export. Will keep the original file names.

in FCP, you can use Media Manger on a bin or sequence of the clips.

OR

in FCP you can Batch Export as QuickTime Movie, and change the settings on export

both will keep File name, TC & Reel#


we are all assuming you have the same FRAME RATE on both sets of media


cheers,
nick

Thanks for that Nick. I do indeed have the same frame rates.
Right now I'm doing a batch Media Manager conversion. I'll do a test later to make sure it worked. Thank you for your help!
