Re: Do Fcpx proxies created from double system audio synced clips retain audio?

[Mauricio Lleras] "Right, so essentially this would create two sets of files, the Fcpx image proxies and then low res exports.
I was wondering if I could use the fcpx create proxies command to get review dailies with sync sound in just one step..."


Proxies are ProRes 422 so they are about 50-60% the size of H264 originals, even though they are 1/4 the pixel resolution. Depending on clip size and bandwidth, not necessarily easy to distribute. By contrast dailies at 1080p or 720p H264 are much smaller and easier to distribute, plus they can include whatever double system audio you want.

My 2017 iMac can export 60 sec of 720p H264 from a 4k timeline in about 34 sec, so that's pretty fast. Sizes for 60 sec clip:

4k H264 original: 646 MB
Proxy: 334 MB
1080p/29.97: 150.4 MB, export time: 38 sec
720p/29.97: 90.5 MB, export time: 34 sec
