I know people have talked about this before but...
I have done tests converting 2K proxies to codecs like ProresHQ and comparing it to ones converted from the Raw data. Honestly, I am not seeing much of a difference.
Is there any reason I cant do a one-light in redalert and output 2K proxies then convert those to ProresHQ? Will there be much of a difference from encoding from the Raw data?
For comparison, I am getting close to real-time when encoding to proresHQ from the 2K proxies but when converting from the Raw its taking about 1 minute per second of footage.
Any help would be appreciated.
P.s. What bit-depth are the QT proxies?
