Re: Should I create proxy & optimized media?

Hi there,

I'm wondering if you can help. I'm currently importing and dealing with a large amount of files for a feature length documentary. i'm new to FCP X so still trying to figure things out.

At the moment most of my footage is in H264 (5D) - I won't be workign off a superfast machine so I imagine it's best to convert the footage to either optimized or proxy (or both??)

My question is if I was just to convert to proxy and work off that to begin with, then when it comes time to add titles, graphics, etc can I do that easily in the native format and then export that way without causing issues or losing time?

If I can get away without the huge conversion times for Optimized and also taking up a lot of space, i'd rather try to do that.

Thank you!
