two editors working on the same project on fcp 7: workflow question
on Jan 20, 2016 at 5:24:27 pm

hi all!

i'm new in fcp (i'm more familiar with media composer) and i'm going to edit a project that has already been worked on fcp.

shot mainly in 7D over a long period of time, the whole material has been transcoded to prores 422 and now occupies about 15TB of hard disk space. the project has been "split" in several fcp projects (let's say that each project covers one shooting period and then there are several others that only have edits).

i would like to be able to work in parallel with the other editor and exchange timelines.

my idea is to recompress the projects that correspond to each shooting period (that's where the master clips are) to prores proxy and try to reconnect the projects with the edits to those. this way i intend to gather all the material in one 5TB hard disk and i assume that the timelines i get from the other editor will reconnect easily. is this assumption correct? any ideas?

every piece of advice will be very much appreciated!
