We are all used to the excellent proxy workflow in Final Cut Pro, but what about using camera generated proxies?

In this new tutorial video, I demonstrate how to work with camera-generated proxies in Final Cut Pro. This means that you can have a proxy workflow without having to convert all your original clips in FCP first.

I cover:

  • Prepping Proxy Files
  • "Faux" Proxy Workflow
  • Real Proxy Workflow
  • Generating Proxies in FCP
