Thread: Proxy files ...

  1. #1

    Default Proxy files ...

    ... generated by the camera, (not the editing software) can they be colour graded, resized etc on the timeline ?

    I don't see why not, if it's a video file it can be handled like a video file. Do thy play back as a video file?

    My Sony camcorders record a more highly compressed MP4 file along with a larger AVCHD file. I sometimes use the MP4 for the initial work of sync and color adjustment. It works okay but processing can bring out compression artifacts.

    I assume so. My understanding is you use them to work your footage on the timeline then somehow you then render the final edit utilising the original larger files!? ... I could be wrong

    Yes, the dual file recording (proxy files) is one of the things that attracted me to the Sony. In theory those proxy files should work with my old editing machine. I hope my understanding is correct and I can use proxies as above. You mention processing bringing out artefacts.. . I thought rendering was carried out by somehow reverting to the original, larger files.

    Right, I mean until I swap out the proxies for the real files.

    By the way, they're not intended to be proxies, they're intended to allow immediate posting to the internet. At least that's what my manuals say.

    I would be inclined to use the proxies for editing for timing etc and maybe some initial grading, but substitute the real files for final colour grading as the proxies will most likely be missing some of the colour information.

    apparently, the proxies are recorded within the real files i can see this is gonna be a nightmare

    What's the camera? Surely the workflow must be documented somewhere.

    Usually I just fiddle but this cameras functions are a bit "involved" so refering to the manual is a nessasery evil !

    Unfortunately, it's more of a "guide" than a full on manual ..

    Here's a link to the online manual and it's information on proxy files.
