    • A story about 4K XAVC-S, Premiere and transcoding
      Prior to editing of 4K XAVC-S files, always use Sony Prepare and save the file to ProRes...It is the easiest way to correctly interpret the file stream.

      I've never worked with proxies but also need to try this! I'm not really tied to anything but when I took up this a few years ago fcpX wasn't popular and my school had premiere so that's what I learned and am comfortable with using. If the tides change though, I know how to edit video in final cut as well or any other software but premiere is where it's at for me right now.

    • WTB: Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera
      Looking to get a Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. Great if it comes with a Cage+handle (preferably SmallRig). Let me know what you have and how much you want for it.

      Thanks

      FWIW, I've been doing proxies with Premiere (CC 2015.3) and it's been breezy.  Attempted it with Resolve, had to give up; not ready for PrimeTime.  Testimony I hear from FCPX says that proxies work well. Basically, proxies allow me to edit documentary work easily.  Makes the editing interface snappier.  I can do everything I need to do quickly.  Upon final export, the renderer uses the 4K source files, so it's really a good way to go.  No need to transcode to a mezzanine format.  I just use the default low-res cineform template when importing footage into my project.  BTW, even with a snappy PC loaded with ram and Navidia1080, I use proxies.  I can absolutely edit h264 4K on my machine, but it will get laggy with longer edits, so why bother?  Just let Premiere make proxies and get to work.  In fact, the assistant editor accesses the proxies across the LAN and works on the same Premiere project as me using an 8 year old iMac. On the other hand, I'm not comfortable on Premiere quite yet.  It does the job, but it feels slightly clunky interface-wise.  Not fond of the way it handles media in projects.  Whereas on FCP7 I could import sequences from project to project without importing the corresponding media used in those sequences.  You can't do that with Premiere.  If you bring in a sequence it needs to have the media clips residing independently inside the project.  It's been a hassle with adding steps to my workflow.  Nothing I can't handle, just a nuisance.  I'd suggest you could edit 4K footage via proxies on a machine like that for years to come.  Sure, you'll need more time on the output render, but at that point I usually like to get away from the project.  Still, a scraming machine will crunch the numbers faster.  Sometimes that's required. BTW, the GUI works better with Premiere and OSX than Premiere and Win10.  I often have to double or triple click the "triangles" to activate them.  Keyframing with Premiere for Win10 isn't as smooth as OSX. So yeah, GUI responsiveness, never really something on a spec sheet, but take my word for it, they aren't equal.  OSX (even an old Mac computer with OSX) works better.
