    Hello, I’m having trouble transcoding my 1920×1080 59.94fps footage to a H.264 proxy inside Avid Media Composer. That option is not available in the selection to transcode.

    Please help me locate the H.264 proxy option.

    It isn’t possible to use H264 in an MXF wrapper (H264 is already a wrapper, so the media would be ‘double-wrapped’ if you could!). In any case, it would not be a pleasant editing experience, given the decoding complexity. Sorry to say, but DNxHR LB is your best option overall. It’s designed for quick, responsive editing and, although not great, the picture quality is perfectly OK for most people.
