The Über Proxy Workflow in FCP X

 In this tutorial, I show you how to create a "Travel" library that references media outside the library in what Apple calls a "Referenced" library. I take it a step further and create Proxy files that are much smaller in size than what Final Cut Pro transcodes natively. There's Compressor droplets and Automator workflows to help speed things along. This was inspired by Sam Woodall and Ben King thanks to their article they shared to, only they missed one thing that makes this work.

    hi jon
    tell me, do you know if the “new proxies” have to be originating from the “old proxies”? or if i can convert the original media to my “new proxies”.
    Thing is that i want to have proxies that are not as bad as the standart proxies, but also i dont need full image quality of the original files.
    thx for the helpful video!
