Hello everyone, I have a question for you. I use FCP to make some math teaching videos. I record them, put them into FCP, edit out my mistakes and then compress to several different versions and post them on my website. Since I record using a CanonHF100 that uses sdhc cards I am trying to figure out the best way to keep a copy of my original footage since I no longer have tapes available. It isn't 100% crucial I keep them forever but I was thinking that I could save some space here and there by doing this: If I edit out the parts I don't need, then export to Quicktime at full quality this would produce a video of the same quality as the original correct? I could then delete the original footage since what I delete is essentially the mistakes I make while recording and it makes no sense to keep them. I then have a full quality original that I can keep in case i need to go back and change something in the future or recompress. I have had to do this anyways because I haven't been able to get Qmaster to work properly on my 8-core mac pro unless I export a quicktime movie and drag it into compressor separately from FCP. What do you guys think? Can you think of a better solution or a reason why I might not want to do this?
