    Transcoding Files??

    alright, i shot a music vid a while back on a Canon 60d... I decided to edit it recently and have finished most of it...

    My only problem is i do not know how to transcode the clips on my timeline so i can get rid of the choppy playback... i did attempt to transcode a clip and all it did was send a new transcoded clip to my footage bin... is there anyway i can transcode just the clips on my timeline without getting a diplicate?

    Mark the entire sequence in to out, activate all tracks, then right click on the sequence in it's bin and choose "consolidate/transcode". In the next window, select transcoding target resolution and other parameters as you desire.

    The numbers in the DnX resolutions are the Mb/sec bit rates. Which one you use is entirely dependent on how much disk storage space you have available and the perceived quality of the image you desire. The absolute best and lossless image will come from using 1:1 10 bit, but that eats up a LOT of space. You also need to determine the quality of the original images you're bringing in, because a mediocre camera resolution would be a waste using 1:1 10 bit. So given you have an adequate amount of storage, you should try between DnX 145, 175 and 220 to see what is the best match for the incoming footage without wasting storage. To help you estimate what you have and what you need, here is a storage calculator tool.
