    Yes, ProRes will be bigger, just like the EditReady made ProRes files.

    FCP can handle either the mp4, or ProRes, but the Mac mini will have a more difficult time with the ProRes files since they are larger and have more data to process.

    Not really. You can always transcode to ProRes at any time in Final Cut by right clicking the media and choosing Transcode Media > Create Optimize Media.

    Edit Ready may insert timecode in to the ProRes files, and FCPX usually imports mp4 files with 00: tc, so that would be the only downside, in that you might not be able to link the orig mp4 to the EditReady made files, but you’d have to test that.

    Your drive is great, love those little powerhouses, it’s your MacMini that is probably struggling with the 4k ProRes. Yes, you can use the mp4s.

    There are six flavors of ProRes:







    The data rate for everything but Proxy is going to be higher than fx30 mp4 files, so bigger files should be expected. Final Cut does just fine with any flavor of ProRes, but depending on your system, you may need to boost either your drive speed, processing speed, or both.

    Please give us more information about your setup.

    Yes. You can not put Events in Folders, but you can put folders in events. You should explore keyword collections as an organizational tool, as well as Smart Collections. You can have one Event, and in that event is folders for different station IDs. In those folders you would have a keyboard collection for the resources, and a smart Collection that will collect the Project based in certain search criteria (like Type is Project, and Name includes ‘Station ID 1’, or whatever works best for your workflow). It could look like the attached.

    I totally get it. I wish fcpx would read the tc too. It would make life easier. In later builds of the Sony camera firmware, you can at least set the option to name clips to camera reel and date format which helps to keep clip names unique, which helps keeping track of the clips.

    The method you suggest of reimporting all media and replacing all media in fcpx can work. It’s going to take a long time. I would suggest creating a new library, importing the media there, and work with your final timeline there. It will cause less confusion with older versions of timelines and media

    Importing clips in to Davinci will also not be easy or quick. But the tc will match between fcpx and Davinci, which makes tracking changes easier.

    Do it the other way around. You have to import the clips in to DaVinci in the media pool, then set the tc of each clip to 0, and then import your XML to Resolve.

    I think you mean embedded, which is 608.

    There’s also the sidecar captions with SRT, webvtt, and many others.

    VLC Player will allow you to preview if they are working or not. Youtube (et al) also allows you to upload your own caption file.

    You can also save your setting as default. At the top of that list, you can use the little drop down menu as “Save as Default”.
