Reverting to proxies mid-edit

Hello, 

 

I'm editing a short film and stupidly didn't start the edit using proxies. I'm now halfway in and my machine is struggling to keep up. 

 

If I were to make proxies now, would I need to redo the edit sequence on the timeline? Or is there a way to keep the timeline as is but link the clips to the proxies? 

 

Help and support is very much appreciated 🙂

Hi, it shouldn't be a problem, there won't be any changes of your edit points when you switch for the proxies, regardless of when you made them. You can make a copy of the project file prior to the proxy making, if you want to feel extra safe, but there shouldn't be any changes in your edit sequence.

Right click on all clips in project panel > Proxy > Create Proxies.

The proxies will automatically be generated and attached.

All you have to do is hit the proxy button in the Program Window.

You could also set up a new project with proxies and import the old one into it.
