I've been testing several workflow options of Epic footage and FCP and have not been able to get FCP to read any Epic footage. It understands Red MX footage fine, but not Epic. Has anyone else been able to Log and Transfer epic footage via FCP, or is there an Epic codec that needs to be installed, or waiting to be released?
For now, aside from 3rd party software, my only option is to transcode proxies in Redcine-X, edit in FCP, then reconform in Redcine-X. If taking into Color for further grading, would then need to transcode out from Redcine-X to ProRes4444 and finish in Color. This seems a painfully long process, but I see no other option until there is an Epic codec or FCP plugin. Perhaps FCP X will come with them?
Is anyone else finishing Epic projects in Color?
