Proxy format question - Prores422 as Proxy? Mpeg-4 as proxy?
I posted this on Apple Discussion forum too.
In the page 8 of Final Cut Server product Overview, Following was mentioned.
Automatic Proxy and Thumbnail Generation
Because Final Cut Server is designed specifically for film and video production, it
automatically generates browse proxies, poster frames, and thumbnails as it catalogs
You can define the size and format of thumbnails for graphics files as well as the
size and format of thumbnails and proxies for video clips. In addition, you can set a
preference to have Final Cut Server generate Apple ProRes 422 edit proxies at the
same time as the normal browse proxies.
Because Final Cut Server automatically associates proxies and reference images with
the original asset, you don’t have to worry about managing multiple files for your clips.
Current FCP 6.02 does not have any easy setup for "Apple ProRes 422 edit proxies".
Is this new setting for proxy other than Photo-Jpeg?
Also the following picture in same page show that MPEG-4 as Clip proxy. What is this for? Will MPEG-4 use as another editable Proxy Format or it is just Proxy for Preview?
And there was some text mentioned H.264 MPEG-4 as Proxy format too. Is this practical?
And Will H.264 can be use as Editable proxy or Preview proxy?
And Will we able to use 2 type of proxy in Final Cut Server? As Editable proxy & Preview proxy?
P.S.: Same as question of below topic. Is there something will happen to make this work around NAB 2008? :roll:
