**sorry for doubleposting, but I guess this is just as much a FCP question **
So, we've been shooting hours and hours of footage on the Alexa, ProRes 4:4:4 setting. The original plan was to convert to ProRes LT, edit in FCP, then reconnect to the 4:4:4 within FCP, and export a full-ress online for grading...
BUT: The editor, recently hired, now refuses to edit in FCP, and will only work in AVID. Fine, he gets his way - but only now are we realizing how this drastically changes our workflow.
We have been doing a few tests of the new workflow, but no succes yet. So far we've tried:
1) Importing the ProRes444 directly in AVID via AMA. Then transcoding to DNxHD36, and relinking back to the QT ProRes for output. BUT; It seems unstable, all converting must be done within AVID, and sometimes the footage will not relink back to the High-Res !!
2) Converting from ProRes to DNxHD36 in QT-wrapper via 3rd party app. Fast import in AVID. Then outputting an EDL CMX3600. Open FCP, import EDL and reconnect media! BUT; For some reason AVID misses the reel-metadata when fastimporting DNxHD36 in a QT-wrapper. Thus; FCP will not automatically reconnect to high-res files, since there is a reel-mismatch. It could be done manually file-by-file, but for at 90 min. tv-show, this is a lengthy process!!
We are pretty much out of ideas just now!! Any help on any stable reliable workaround really appreciated!!
Is there any way to make AVID import the reel-meta-data from the QT-files? Or other ways to online this beast?
