In FCPX Preferences Import
Do you have Create Optimized Media selected?
That would result in the files being transcoded to ProRes.
In fact that would have a major impact on a project like yours given the mixed codecs. If you “stay native” (don’t have the above enabled) you might slow down the editing process if the computers have to decode H.264 and XDCAM EX simultaneously in real time.
We posted a new entry, finally have internet again. https://fcpxmegatest.blogspot.com/
This entry is a lot about features we like and features that missing or not as we would like them for our working-speed.
There will be a clip soon.
We are well over 1500 clips that have probably turned into 7.000 keyword items already after 30% of the shoot.
We are mixing XDCam, DVCProHD, h.264 (DSLR, GoPro), framerates from 25 to 60 and edit on relatively old Macbooks at 1080p…….so far so good.
