I'm wondering if anyone can help me out with this question, I'm trying to decide between fcp or pp with cineform, I prefer to stay with pp, but I see people saying that fcp is the best approach for speed etc, my question is, the qt ref files that are used in fcp that make it so no rendering out of redcine is required like with cineform, aren't those qt ref files lower quality then fully rendered out clips from redcine, I read something from a red team member that there maybe aliasing etc, but that will change in the future, if that's the case wouldnt' one have to go the whole rendering route anyway for the online edit? If that's the case I'd stick to pp and cineform and just render out from redcine to start with, or am I missing something here?
Any info on this appreciated.
For the last step there's no avoiding rendering, but to just do an on-line or offline edit on the Mac side takes less time & less steps - this works for PP or FCP on the mac side.
The slowdown on PC is that there is no QT redcode component for XP/Vista yet, so one must render to a different format.
One way to speed things up a bit would be to render low res proxies out of Redcine for offlining, then create a 'pull list' of clips you want to render out at high rez for the final 'online' version. Better than that, generate an EDL out of PP, and do a proper conform in Scratch.
