I am currently editing a project in Final Cut Pro (newest update) and am using the _P files to make the first rough cut. I use REDCODE as sequence preset and it works quite well, although if I add an effect or something else that needs render, and render it, it turns grey. If I look up the files it's just a 4kb grey file. I tried using PRORES as sequence preset, but then I need to render all the time. The sequence is red then.
Is it somehow possible to use REDCODE as codec but have renders work? Or would it be better to transcode all the material into ProRes and take it from there? Is it possible to keep the timecode although converted to ProRes and online it again afterwards? How's the workflow on that?
Thanks for any information on that!
