Difference between sub-masters/clips and transcodes?
on Jan 18, 2018 at 11:43:34 am

I'm only just starting to use AVID as I've been a Premiere editor up until now, and the answer is probably really simple and I'm just not being smart... But can someone please explain to me the difference between sub-masters and transcodes?

This is what I thought it is but I am confused:
Sub-masters are copies of the originals that are lower quality .mxf's (proxies), and the transcodes were the files AVID creates for those sub-masters. In order to use AVID you need both the sub-masters and transcodes to edit, not just the transcodes on their own.
