Is mp4 my best/only option for exporting PPro sequences?
I shoot with a Canon DSLR, 24p, 1080. I know the footage gets compressed natively onto the SD card by the camera with the H264 codec. No problem with that. However, I dump the footage directly onto a PPro timeline, do my thing, and when it comes time to export, I go to name the file and see that the only option is mp4.
Isn't my native footage on the SD card already stepped on with the H264 codec? I get that this is how the camera works, but doesn't exporting to mp4 step on it once more? How can I export it without stepping on it a 2nd time?
