Premiere Pro workflow question about linking back to raw footage?
by James Morrison on Jul 12, 2016 at 5:55:29 pm
I'm currently editing a project and am worried about how I will link back to my raw files once the edit is complete. I was hoping you guys might be able to offer me some advice before I get too far along and find that I'm unable to relink to the footage my colorist will want to grade.
Below is a quick rundown of my current workflow:
Project was shot on Arri Alexa in ProRes 4444 > Footage was transcoded to proxies > Proxies were imported into Premiere Pro and synced manually > Synced clips were then MERGED within premiere > All edits were made with MERGED clips.
Now my plan is to export an EDL of the MERGED CLIPS that I can use to link back to the original ProRes 4444 files, but I'm worried that the merged clips will not contain the correct info to do so.
Does anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks so much!
