Transcode or edit native?
on Aug 27, 2014 at 8:49:36 pm

When editing H.264 or MP4 (from an EX1 or F3), I've typically just edited natively. Would I be better served transcoding to some I-frame codec, like ProRes? And if so, which one?

Editing in Premiere Pro CC 2014

I'm on a MacPro, late 2008, 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, OS X 10.9.2, Kona 3, 24GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Always native to save another compression step on your footage.

With that being said, if you have a lot of effects work or composting to do, it would serve you well to convert to Prores .mov file first.
