I've been on a couple of shoots with our new RED Epic, and an issue is that it always take quite a deal of time to generate proxies for HD productions. We are shooting 5k or 4K as 2K would result in a need for wider angle lenses and more distortion. I need to generate ProRes proxies in HD. What's the fastest setup? Particularly, concerning the Software scaling, I found no information about the processing time of each of the 8 scaling algorithms.
- Debayer : I user 4k 1/4th
- Software scaling, which one if the fastest? Does it matters that much?
Some other tips to speed up the generation of proxies? (We're on the field, as for now we use a Macbook Pro, we might take an iMac if needed, but a Macpro is quite some hassle)
