Actually Fred, you hit on precisely that aspect of the workflow that made me reluctant to get into an explanation. You see, I never recommend proxies with different pixel dimensions than my final master, because doing means that all graphics, titles, repositioning, scaling, etc., will have to be redone once the original footage is conformed/relinked, and given that FCP 7 does not support 4K, it just would not have made sense for Phillipe to move the project to FCP X or another app, where almost everything would need a redo.

Make sense?
