So, I’m about to send out material to be worked on remotely. Having 60-70 layers I want to send out an archive in 422proxy, as the keying with low bandwidth material seems to look OK.
I create a new project with ProRes422proxy as the “preferred format” but the archive doesn’t care about this setting and wants to go big on me. The proxy material is 15GB in total and with only 8 layers I’m at 120GB.
Again, this is where something resembling a shotgun, open-clip, pattern browsing kind of workflow comes in handy.
Storing stuff in a local framestore that isn’t a cache from a network file system just seems like the old days.
And I know I’m a broken record because I’ve been saying that since the old days.
