Question concerning Pro Res 422
on Jul 30, 2013 at 8:16:53 pm

I recently shot a large movie project shot with three different cameras in 1920 x1080/30fps (all mov files at this point).
This footage combined is around 160 GB, and 160 GB converted to pro res is going to become huge. I have 1 TB left on one drive... not much for pro res in some cases.

Is there a better way to start managing huge projects without converting to pro-res? Or do I just need to keep buying hard drives?

Intel iMac 3.06, 4 gb memory.

Have you considered a offline to online workflow, like working with footage in prores proxy and when you're done make an online of your edit in HQ? Shane Ross did a tutorial about the offline / online workflow: http://library.creativecow.net/articles/ross_shane/tapeless_online/video-tu...

Drives are so cheap. 160 gig of H264 (I presume) isn't a lot of camera footage compared to a typical long form doco. I would just go to ProRes with a bigger drive. Offline /Online might make sense if you had 100 hours of source material rather than 6.

Yes, about 80gb of it is H.264 and the rest is AVCHD (Apple Intermediate Codec, Linear PCM, Timecode). The only real space I have left on one of my drives is about (1) TB.


This main project gets the attention first - 160GB. The others I will edit later. So all in all, I have close to 400 GB combined.

Thanks for the input...

This sounds like a great idea...small or large projects. I will check out the video...


Thanks

No question about it: doing a proper high-quality job of cutting big projects in FCP -- or any NLE, for that matter -- takes a whole bunch of fast storage with fast connections to the computer.
