[Andrew Kimery] "I had to refresh my memory, but "Focus" was cut at online rez. It was shot in anamorphic 2048 x 1536 ProRes 4444 and then converted/ de-squeezed to 2048x1152 ProRes 4444 for editing. They had 145 hours of footage so that's around... 25TB of data. I think working w/online media was one of the feather's in X's cap on that project"

This was still a proxy created for editorial, although "full quality", but technically still a proxy. However, that's still a far cry from dealing with 145 hours of ARRIRAW or RED RAW at 4K and higher in a native format. Both "Focus" and "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" benefitted from the fact that these were ARRI shows. Alexa files and ProRes are ideal for Macs and FCPX in particular. For more info, here's the link to my original interview. Look at the media management section. And the editing didn't use cheese-grater Macs.

And the changes made for "WTF":

Finally, one other (sort of) "Hollywood" film and FCPX:
