    Upres DNX36 to DNX-175X from QT Files

    I am about to be handed a project with 35 hours of footage in the form of uncompressed QT files. Shot on PS CAM X35, WEISSCAM HS-2 MKII.  If I ingest it at DNX175X I would be looking at over 2.5 TB of transcoded media. This is too big to fit the transcodes and source files on the same drive.

    I want to ingest at DNX36, and then upres final cut. I have not been able to find a way to do so from QT files. I only know how to do so from tape. I am running avid 5.0.3

    Thank you for your help.

    Well the old way would be to batch import the files in at DNX36.

    When you have your final sequence chose to batch re-import (if the DNX36 media is still online then don't tick the offline media only) Select DNX175 (do you really need the 10bit x?) and let it go.

    Possibly re-render any renders at DNX175 Re-create any titles.

    But possibly AMA to the files and cut then Transcode to DNX175 at the end.

    If I re-import wont it import the entire file again? Not just the section used? If so, I am back to the original problem of having over 2.5 TB.

    Why don't you transcode the final timeline only?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had actually just tried that minutes before you posted. I suppose my only point of clarification is if I do that, does it actually pull from the source file and transcode a true DNX175X, or is it using the DNX36 in the project and faking a DNX175X.

    If it is so then every transcode would be fake.
