Several diagrams for each step of this complexe workflow with many advantages

Workflow n°5 : Proxy Transcode of Media. Clic ➧ Enlarge

Thus Editing can take place on less powerful workstation than with the Originals.

Workflow n°5 : Optimise Transcode of timeline’s clips. Clic ➧ Enlarge

Thanks to the XML file (and a conformation) only trimmed Media in the timeline are transcoded in Optimised media.

Workflow n°5 : Trimmed Optimised Media allow to finish the workflow. Clic ➧ Enlarge

One more time the XML file and a conformation with trimmed Optimised Media are enough for Color Grading.


  1. Lossless Transcode ➧ Optimised Media are identical to Native Media
  2. Proxy & Optimised Media have a low decode complexity ➧ Less CPU power is used for the playback (crucial for RealTime Softwares)


  1. Transcode ➧ Take a lot of time
  2. Optimised Media have a high bandwidth ➧ Need for a fast RAID storage
  3. 2 conformations.
