Drew - "Tom - We do use the ProRes workflow some--but most of our work gets output back to the XDCam optical disc. In order to do that, I have to output it as an XDCam 1080i 60 VBR sequence to the XDCam deck. So staying in the native XDCam sequence makes sense to us. Quality and render times are no different. I'm open to all ideas though--enlighten me if you think we should do differently. In switching to Premiere Pro this will a be a moot point anyway, right?"

If you are archiving to the XDCAM I guess it makes sense to master with that codec. But using an acquisition codec for mastering makes me a bit nervous. Walter brings up a great point about not relying on Apples codec, especially in light of their current actions. Its to bad, with Alexa and others adopting it for use. And it makes such wonderfully clean compression. I feel somewhat on the fence about which mastering codecs to standardize to in the near future. I have heard good and bad about Cineform and dont know enough to make any decisions.
