Thread: final cut pro on Mac Book Pro low res workflow

    Default final cut pro on Mac Book Pro low res workflow

    I'm starting editing with final cut pro and am using a mac book pro to do all of the editing. My idea is to use low res for the editing in order to save hard drive space, and then recapture after editing to the high res. However, I'm not really sure how to do this and the manual writes just about everything in a very round about way. So if anyone would be kind enough to post a log and capture and then recapture workflow link or their own personal suggestions that would be great?

    Thanks a lot,
    John

    hey mexipike. i also edit on FCP 6 on a macbook. when it comes to resolution, from my experience, you cant really cheat a lot. its one of those things that come with the territory, now what you can do is capture and recompress using the media manager which makes a new project with your recompressed clips. tweak your settings to your pleasure but the top codecs for FCP are dv ntsc, apple intermediate and h264 mov.

    hope this helps. Please take a look at my forum to add your problem and to see if you could help with others.
