    Make sure there’s no in and out set on time line.
    Right click next to the scrubber and clear in and out points.

    Thanks Dave. The thing is, I did this but everything is showing it as 25p, not 50i?
    Mpeg stream clip for example says it’s 25?

    Sorry that was a mistype. I meant 1080, 50i 🙂

    Awww that’s a shame then.
    In which case, how does Avid’s Media Composer cloud do it? I watched the demo and they don’t seem to have any issues with speed working from the same proxies remotely. he even mentioned 4G would work fine. Does it continuously make incredibly light proxies all the time or something?

    Step 1, download and install perian from here: https://perian.cachefly.net/Perian_1.2.3.dmg and install it
    Step 2 download mpeg streamclip from here: https://www.squared5.com/
    Step 3 Open Mpeg streamclip, press cmd + B to open a batch list, drag ALL the footage in question into it.
    An option window will come up asking you what to convert it to, choose quicktime movie, select options and change the codec to something final cut friendly. Lots and lots of people here would recommend pro res but I thing that for DSLR footage prores is massive overkill, so I’d suggest something smaller like xdcam.
    Step 4 use the newly encoded footage in final cut and never try and edit with H264 footage again. Its horrible horrible stuff.

    A lot of overly corporate sounding stuff but there’s a some real gems there as well.

    From reading your post it sounds like you’ve aged with the file structure of the media. This is something you should never do when shooting I’m a card format. The only way to fix it is to recreate it by perhaps creating new folders and naming them the right thing, or renaming foders what they used to be. For example with xdcam clips everything lies in a folder called “bpav”. We constantly have issues with people trying to be helpful by renaming that folder to something different (like the date) but it means nothing recognises it for import, so we have to rename it “bpav”. To organise, don’t rename, or touch anything- simply drag exact of the folders onto your hard drive. If you need help fixing the fil structure I would shoot something else on that camera and copy that file structure. Hope that makes sense.

    Hiya,

    Thats cool, the workflow you suggested would work, but my question is why do you need to supply a prores HQ film? Have you been asked for that? Because you can’t ‘upres’ really as the footage is the footage. It seems a bit of a redundant thing to do is all 🙂

    OK a few things to cover here, because judging from the post I’m not sure how much you understand the whole H264/ Prores thing.

    For a start, unless specifically asked, don’t bother with Prores HQ. Standard Prores is just as good for H264- you cant add quality where there isn’t any, and HQ will just give you bigger file sizes with no extra gain- remember, you can’t ‘upscale’ into prores 422. Something which shoot natively in Prores422 is a very different ball game.

    Secondly, you may not quite get why we do this- its not that Final Cut can’t handle H264 files at all, its that theyre terrible to edit with, for various reasons. The whole point of importing as prores BEFORE you start an edit is because if anything’s going to corrupt a sequence, it will be H264, and that plus rendering and colour space etc, its worth bringing them in as prores. By Changing the sequence to prores and exporting that, again you wont gain any quality- H264 is a good format to provide the final product in anyway (indeed bluray is H264 if I remember rightly)-so there’s no point in doing that. Again, this isnt about losing or gaining quality, its about making it a faster and smoother editing experience. For example, a minute of footage that needs rendered when all the footage is prores could render in say 10 seconds, whilst if the footage and sequence is all H264, it could take a minute.

    As for the Premier thing, no its not a better option, although a few may tell you different. Premier is a 64 bit application, and it also renders in the background, but if you are not familiar with it then leave it alone IMO- its not doing anything FCP cant do other than render in the background, which sounds great but I know in my case my knowledge of FCP is enough to make up for the time it takes to transcode everything to prores and edit.

    If you are having trouble with the log and transfer tool, use mpeg streamclip to transcode everything into prores then just reconnect to that.

    Well its a G-RAID, so 2 1TB drives hardware striped together- isnt that about what I should expect from that level of hardware over esata? What would you suggest I do?
