proxy workflow?

Hi.

got FCP X and starting some projects on it. I've never used proxy before because always had enough HD space.

I'm wondering if anyone can share what is a tipical workflow with proxy in FCP X.

1- I see that you have the option in preference to use proxy or original/transcoded

2- seems weird that it makes applies to every event, it'll make more sense to me if i could have individual events/projects selected as proxy or original

3- seems you can't have mixed proxy and proRes in one event/project

4- so if I want to import files like..a a film burn clip, or any other type of file..does it have to be proxy too?


I will go to proRes but I need to safe on space so I thought I try this..

any help will be appreciated..

thank you

Re: proxy workflow?

When you import from camera (or hdd archive) you have the option to create proxy files for that event. So, in that case it does prompt on a per-project basis.
