Every week i'm getting tired of wasting hours (and I mean hours) of rendering when I'm mixing native sony XDCAM EX footage and AVCHD converted to ProRes via Log and Transfer into a XDCAM timeline. If I convert my XDCAM to ProRes to match my AVCHD how long am I looking at converting the clips? I normally shoot about 2 hours worth of footage. I love how when I re-wrap using XDCAM Transfer it takes seconds and I'm done ingesting and able to edit all my clips in about a half hour or less. If I transcode them will I loose the timecode? (not a huge deal but it would be nice) Now if I'm using a ProRes timeline, how long will my export be of my final piece? My sequences are about an hour and a half to 2 hours and at lease two video streams if not three and one still graphic at the same time. Would switching over to FCP X be better? I'm not bashing it, but I'm used to FCP and the way things worked and that when I need to do something I just do it and don't have to think "o how do I do that" How would it handle my workload? Also the media management has me worried. I like to have a separate folder with all my projects media in one folder (which then gets broken down into more folders) I really don't have time to do a test run as my work load is crazy with an evan crazier turnaround.
