Multicam C200 Cinema Raw Light performance

Recommended Posts

Curious to hear people’s experience editing multicam of C200 CRM raw files on Mac. I have a spec’d out 2015 15” quad core i7 MBP with 16GB RAM and I do music videos with 6-9 cameras angles. I’m thinking this would be out of the question without transcoding as I can’t even edit multi cam 4k H.264 in Final Cut Pro without transcoding. This is partly why I bought a Ninja V to avoid the transcoding process  

Anyway, I’d like to move to raw but thinking I may need ProRes RAW or BRAW for my use case. I did download some CRM test clips and it seemed maybe almost workable, but it’s right at the borderline. I’m afraid it would bottleneck my edits without a laptop upgrade or transcoding though.  I can’t find many good reports of editing performance via the ol’ Google.

BTW, Davinci Resolve 15 performed worse than FCPX on my laptop for CRM. I prefer Resolve for grading functionality but FCPX for performance.

I'm editing CRM on a mid-2014 MBP (16GB ram, i7). I don't know about multi-cam, but I can edit the CRM files natively within FCPX without any LUTS applied. As soon as I apply any LUTS, or colour correction, the whole thing falls apart. It's not a massive issue though, just create proxy files and you should have no problem.

Ok thanks for the feedback!
