Without question, the most frequent questions we get involve working with media. Before we can even start editing, we need to figure out what to do with all the files generated on set. This Q&A session, hosted by Larry Jordan, answers and explains common media problems and storage requirements for editors using both Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X.

Topics covered during this session include:

  • How file size and frame rate affect storage
  • Planning storage bandwidth and capacity
  • Integrating multiple video formats into the same project
  • Why and when to work with proxies
  • The impact of 8K video on editorial workflow
  • Sharing media between editors

If you are spending more time wrestling your media instead of editing, this session is for you.
