Using Cineform as editing codec
Hello! So I recently had to edit a 4k project on my windows desktop and by the time it was done (hour and half worth of footage) my computer was getting pretty slow at responding. So then I started to look into various editing techniques such as working with proxies or converting footage. I like the idea of converting my footage to cineform codec to make editing and cross platform sharing easier. I just had a few questions on the workflow of doing this. I've seen multiple discussions on converting the footage once all editing is done but I would like to convert all footage BEFORE any editing is done to take the load of the computer. Any information would help! How do you guys go about this? Do you load all your 4k files into Gopro Studio to convert the files? Then are the files saved as a cineform codec and edited from there?? I am using Premiere Pro and all the other apps in Adobe Creative Cloud.
