    [Jeremy Garchow] “these proxy files are automatically generated by a server, so it owed be great if FCPX could relink to them and the high res, and back”

    I see. That would make life easier for sure. And I see no reason why it is such a problem in fcpx. While you can relink files manually one by one, no way to batch relink…

    Hi, Jeremy
    You must be speaking about mp4 proxies for mxf?
    Why not to use mxf proxies instead? Then there won’t be any difficulty to relink.
    Or am I getting it wrong?

    I’ve noticed decreased performance, beachballs and crashes. Tested on different Macs: iMacPro, 5k iMac, MacBookPro 15, MacBookPro 18 and even iMac late 2012. Mojave everywhere. While there may be some benefits in export time (I measured only on my old iMac and it is about 20% faster), the overall stability on large projects is terrible.
    I was going to do clean install to find out if that helps on all of the Macs, but reading your post I won’t even bother and waste time.

    Select project in the browser, then File-Transcode media…

    In the office we have workstations with thunderbolt RAIDs.
    For one of the projects that has thousands of files and terabytes of video (HD and 4K) we keep original files on a server which isn’t fast enough to feed 4K to all the editors. So we use proxies to edit. But because the project is still being filmed, we do not use FCPX built-in proxy workflow or that would make every mac busy generating proxies every time new media arrives. Instead, I use one mac for that purpose. Here’s the process:
    0. Back up
    1. Import from cards using FCPX import dialogue. That rewraps files to MOV no matter what it originally was (we have cards from FS7, A7S, some P2, XDCAM and other). Those MOV files are copied to the server and will be later used as originals.
    2. Use FCPX to generate proxies.
    3. Organize proxies in finder
    4. Relink
    When it’s time to go online we have no problems relinking back to originals.

    Import with FCPX or rewrap camera originals to MOV using third party software. Relinking files with different extensions is a pain – you can do it but you’ll have to point FCP to each file manually. And because FCPX proxies are MOV files, your originals should be MOV as well.

    Side note:
    I also wanted to make it possible to edit outside the office on my MacBookPro on a portable USB drive, but the proxies have grown to almost 2TB and they keep growing. So I took it one step further. I used EditReady to create “even smaller” proxies (h264 960×540 5 Mbit/s MOV). Why EditReady? Because you have to keep the original amount of audio channels (most files we have from FS7 are 8 channels) in your proxy files, and Compressor only allows to choose from Mono-Stereo-5.1. Or “Copy audio tracks from source”, but it makes my “even smaller proxies” not that small. In EditReady it was possible to convert audio to AAC and preserve the quantity of channels. In the end I have light copy of proxies (about 400GB) on a portable drive.

    And even more!
    I have identical volume names and folder path to the “ProRes proxies” on my office RAID and to the “h264 proxies” on my USB drive. Now, I simply transfer my small library file between MacBook and iMac and no relinking needed. It relinks automatically.

    So I guess your MANUAL PROXY RELINK PROCESS should work just fine.

    Unfortunately in my case this is not some random UI glitch. Nothing seems to fix it: restart, reinstall, change OS, change computer, trash prefs, delete cache, different versions of ProVideoFormats, different codecs… It’s a bug, reproducible on every machine I have access to. But is it the same for everyone?

    When you select a new word within the same text clip, ‘Colors’ panel applies to the new selection. If you switch to adjusting another text clip you have to open ‘Colors’ again. But there is a way to avoid it if you use ‘favourites’ and drag them to the colour box. Have a look:

    Hope that helps

    I assigned “Show/hide audio lanes” the same short cut I used to expand all audio. It doesn’t expand all clips as before, but it looks pretty close to what it used to be. Didn’t have a chance yet to test it on a real project, only playing with it on home machine so far, but I hope it can replace the lost expand all command…

    Not a direct answer to your question, but if you bring A7 media into FCPX with Import dialogue, FCPX will read the card structure and show non-zero timecode. But it will have to rewrap those MP4 to mov thus wasting disk space and time…
