How can I get recompressed footage in Sequence?
on Jul 29, 2015 at 5:00:02 pm

Hello,

I have an edited timeline with footage in the format of DVCPRO HD 1080i60. I went in to Media Manager and recompressed all the clips to Apple Prores 422 HQ. Now I have a folder of recompressed clips but they are not in the timeline. How can I substitute the old codec clips with the new prores clips.

I'm working on a feature that was actually edited years ago by someone else but I'm now getting it ready for online distribution. I need to get two versions, one in Apple prores 422 and one in H.264. I have tried, unsuccessfully to export it in prores and in h.264. I figured recompressing the clips first would make the process easier.

Please help!

YOu shouldn't have done that. How you compressed this footage even further, when it was best to work with it as DVCPRO HD. That's the native compression, and FCP works with that well. Converting to ProRes 422 didn't gain you anything...not even quality. All you did is compress the footage further.

Stick with the DVCPRO HD. And then export to ProRes when done.
