H264 from ML Raw for offline editing
« on: April 26, 2015, 07:07:16 PM »

   I am on Resolve under Win7 and am looking for the best workflow to get editable proxies from ML raw. Since I don't have ProRes 422 (proxy) on this platform I was wondering if H264 I-frame only could be decent to do the editing.

Here is how I would do the rendering to obtain editable h264 proxy files:

Render timeline as: individual source clips
Video Format: QuickTime
Codec: H.264
Comp Quality: Best
Data Rate: Automatic
Key Frames: Every 1 frames
Frame reordering: off
Field rendering: off
Render unique filenames: off
Force sizing to highest quality: yes
Force debayer resolution to highest quality: yes
Enable flat pass: off

I don't seem to find other formats and codes under Resolve except maybe for DNxHD which would take a lot of space though.

Any suggests?

DNxHD is honestly your best best. You don't want to be editing with h264.
