  • Ben and Doug, problem solved!

    Turns out the Filmhub site had conflicting info. In one area it said to only send a film with the ProRes 422 HQ codec, but at another place they state they didn’t encourage 4444 XQ because of storage issues on their end. Since my film is only 75 minutes long the exported file turned out to be just 64GB and it was accepted.

    Thanks again to both of you for your help!


  • Doug, a new, bizarre detail has occurred. This morning when I opened one of the possible versions of the project under the “Available Media Representations” it clearly said Apple Pro Res 4444 (that’s good, that’s the big filing I need to export). Literally, a few minutes later, all three of the versions show, under “Available Media Representations”, “Original (Apple Pro Res Proxy)”. I didn’t change anything at all in the interim. Is there some type of automatic switchover to Proxy once the FCPX is up and running?

  • Doug, thanks for the tips.

    Will give it a go tomorrow morning and let you know how it went.

    Thanks again,


  • So here’s what I think MAY be going on…

    On another timeline (with a different version of the film I can’t use for Filmhub due to its dimensions) under “Available Media Representations” there’s a green dot next to “Original (Apple ProRes 4444)”.

    When I began to try and export that the estimated size was similar to our examples (103 GB). When I started the export, as an experiment, it was taking a lot longer than our examples, telling me that, yes, the file was going to be huge and would probably be around 100GB. But like I said, I can’t use it due to its dimensions which are unchangeable.

    In the timeline I’ve being trying to export, per our discussion, underneath the “Available Media Representations” it says “Original Apple ProRes 422 Proxy” with a green dot next to it, then under that is a red triangle with “Proxy” next to it. But if that’s the case, why would the est. size of the file in the Export File window say the exported file would be over 100 GB?

    Thanks again for your time, Doug. You’ve helped this tech idiot learn some stuff so far. Hopefully more!


  • Updated MacOS to 13.2.1

    Downloaded Pro Video Formats.

    Gave it another shot at exporting.

    Analyzed it in Invisor with some encouraging results…

    Format profile now is “422 HQ”

    The overall bit rate is higher at 69.4 mb/s vs. 54.4 mb/s before.

    What concerns me, though, is that the file size is still 39 GB.

    At Filmhub they say a 90-minute film should be around 100GB.

    My film is 75 min. at 39GB.

    Do you think it’s worth a shot at trying to upload it there again (takes about 6.5 hours)?

  • I’m running FCP 10.6.5 as well.

    MacOS 13.2

    edit: Just downloaded Pro Video Formats…will give it a try!



  • Here ya go, Doug…

  • Hey Doug, any info about that client footage you exported overnight?



  • Happened again 🙁

  • That’s so odd, I’m positive I had it set on HQ both times.

    Could it be possibly be a software glitch from the latest FCPX update or some incompatibility with Ventura?

    Regardless, I’ll give it another shot!

    Thanks again and I’ll let you know what happens,
