  • RAW 2.5K Proxy Workflow - Resolveto Premiere Round Trip

    Been experimenting with different workflows and after trying everything under the sun, I've settled on this one for working with the 2.5K RAW Cinema DNG files. Using proxy files is the way to go and the process isn't overly complicated. Link is to an article I wrote on the subject:

    Why export your editing proxies in a long GOP codec like h.264?

      The shot at 0:42 is incredible!

        @Jared- Only because of the super small file size and the ability to export at 2400 x 1350. My longest clip, which was 1:26, turned into a 40MB proxy file. The corresponding CinemaDNG file was almost 10GB. You can even export SD proxy files, and as long as there isn't duplicate timecode data, Resolve should still link back to the original CinemaDNG files when bringing the edit back into Resolve.

        I would mess with the export settings to give you a high enough quality image to edit (that you don't mind looking at on your timeline), but "lossy" enough to cut and playback easily on your system.

          With a Long GOP codec, you are not editing with frame by frame accuracy. Codecs like ProRes are much better for this very reason.

            Jared, I use the same workflow that WayWestMedia outlined. What codec do you recommend for Windows that will get you the full 2.5K resolution?
