Replace audio Cineform track in FCP – unnecessary encode
Hi! I am using pluraleyes to replace an audio track from the camera with one recorded off camera. I have the camera file aligned with the off-camera audio.
Now I proceed to delete the audio from the camera file.
At this time when I export, (keeping the same settings) FCP should just re-encode the audio. This should not be more than a few minutes.
I get 7 minutes on a quad core for a 2 min Cineform file. This leads me to believe that FCP is re-encoding the original file.
Is there a way to prevent this ? To force a “Smart Encode” where only the audio is encoded ?
