Workflow advice Alexa mini – prores 444 at 3.2K – offline/online
Hi everyone I am looking for some workflow advice.
I’ve been on maternity leave for a few years so wanted to see if anything had changed in that time.
I am due to cut a micro budget film – estimated length 97mins.
The film will be shot on a single Alexa mini – prores 444 at 3.2K.
Audio and Picture recorded separately.
Editing will mostly on a 2016 iMac , with 32gb RAM
The film will be graded in a DI suite but the cutting copy will be graded b&W in the software.
I anticipate that there will be a fair amount of FX used on the sound track. Minimal effects on the picture side.
At the moment I am undecided if I should edit this project on Avid Media Composer. Or Adobe Premier.
I think this might be the route I take, but I want to see if there are any other suggestions.
- Seeing as I am cutting on an oldish iMac I was thinking of transferring all footage to 1920 x 1080 – working offline
- Sync all picture and audio in Avid via old school method of clapper sync points. Syncing to mix track so that it can be matched back to the full audio tracks.
- Once the project is complete – export timeline. Create a new 3.2k project, import timeline and reconnect to the original media.
- Export for the grade.
Does this sound okay? Any other suggestions will be gratefully received. Also, could the same workflow work for Premier.
What software would you suggest to convert the Arri Footage to 1920 x 1080?
