Hello, Just when i thought i figured out a good workflow i got sidetracked by reading and messing around with yet another format. Here's my problem. I record using 3 different cameras. 2 of my own and one is my buddy's. I have a Sony FX-7 and a Canon 60D DSLR and he has a Canon XHA1S. HOW I DO IT. just recently i started using compressor. i drop both Canon clips into compressor to match the Sony FX-7 (this was my only and main source of video) Using the same codec and frame size/rate final cut then allows me to do a multi cam edit. GOOD. All the video is then imported to final cut pro as 1440x1080i 30ftp. No rendering, no delays etc... seems to work just fine. Then i export as .mov using current settings. Now in final cut pro my sequence setting is HDV 1440x1080i which after exported to .mov for final version it turns into 1920x1080i. Is this a decent work flow or should i be concerned? Why am i reading you should convert all your footage to apple pro ress before editing? Should i be converting all my footage to apple pro ress and if so at what size? 1920x1080 or 1440x1080. The cameras record at different sizes so i'm not sure how to set my settings. And if i did convert all the footage to apples pro ress then whatever size i choose i'd have to set my final cut pro sequence to the same so it matched? Sorry for the scattered thoughts but am i thinking about this the right or wrong way? Thanks!
