We appreciate you writing in. Do you wish create proxy files for editing in Premiere Pro?
Let us know.
Hi Shivangi - It looks like Ross man have found his answer but I have the same question.
I would like to transcode my Canon EOS R5 8k Raw files to Prores RAw to make it faster to edit on my Macbook Pro with the M1 Max chip. Can I do this on Media Encoder. I don't need it to be proxy files since there is no need to keep the original Canon files after I transcode to Prores Raw.
I'd appreciate your input.
No, I want to create another file (lossless) and in a second step create a Proxy file for editing. In the past I had difficulties when I created directly from the CRM 8K file a proxy file in Premiere. Premiere had problems to export a sequenz when relinked to the original CRM file. So I thought it would be the best to create from the crm file a prores file without loosing any information (for later color grading).
Has this ever been resolved? I'm having the same issue... super slow render speeds on sequences containing .CRM clips. It's debilatating because I can't even efficiently create proxies either without getting the same slow speeds with Media Encoder. I've moved the same sequence over to Resolve and it rendered at expected speeds (real-time). Sequence contained no effects. Any thoughts or solutions out there? Thanks!
