Since several years editing softwares can Proxy transcode all imported native Media. It makes things simpler.
Thus Editing can take place on less powerful workstation than with the Originals.
Thanks to the XML file only trimmed Media in the timeline are transcoded in Optimised media.
The XML file and a conformation with trimmed Optimised Media are enough for Color Grading.
- Lossless Transcode ➧ Optimised Media are identical to Native Media
- Proxy & Optimised Media have a low decode complexity ➧ Less CPU power is used for the playback (crucial for RealTime Softwares)
- Optimised Media have a high bandwidth ➧ Need for a fast RAID storage
- 1 conformations.
