Clipwrap question [simplify it's purpose]

So; Clip-wrap,

To avoid massive size increases when transcoding, can I just re-wrap the footage I have [without transcoding] and edit in iMovie or Final Cut X?

Or do I HAVE to transcode?

Thanks :0)

Re: Clipwrap question [simplify it's purpose]

With iMovie, you essentially always have to transcode - even if you bring a rewrap into imovie (current versions at least) it's going to transcode the file (even if you don't check Optimize).

With FCPX, if you've got a fast enough machine, you can use rewraps. (Assuming we're talking AVCHD, if you're shooting HDV, rewraps work great with FCP 5.1.4 and later) With slower machines though, or for effects-heavy work, you'll still want to transcode.

Even in FCP X, AVCHD rewraps can bog down the machine. HDV rewraps work great in FCP X. Transcoding to ProRes is the best and ClipWrap does it fast.
