Hi all. I need a brain bigger than mine to help untangle this mess, please…
a) Three-day shoot using Sony Venice delivered as .mxf, using X-OCN codec UHD RAW
b) Some unknown tech used Resolve to transcode that original footage to HD .mxf in ProRes 422 to edit with in FCPX (matching file names)
c) those ProRes clips were synced in FCPX with master audio and synced clips used as source for main edit. Edit was completed by a third party, using those synced clips.
d) the assumption was that when the edit was complete, the HD footage could be relinked in FCPX to the original Venice X-OCN masters for VFX and color work, but of course, FCPX doesn’t import X-OCN and there is no overt connection between either set of files
So my question is, do I have any available workflow options, that would allow me (having inherited this mess), to swap out the HD ProRes clips used to make the synced clips, with the the X-OCN master UHD clips? I’ve tried everything.
Grateful for any suggestions. Don’t make me re-edit the whole darn thing…. 🙁
Thank you in advance
