    Proxy file creation

    HI

    I don't know if this is the best place where giving this question, so I think that the moderator will forward or suggest me the best place.

    After writing my mxf wrapper that works correctly in Media Composer, I'm attempting to write a proxy version of the same file. The question is  : How Media Composer starting from a clip,  detect the associated  proxy file ? They should have the same GUID ?

    Regards

    Francesco

    You can use either version to edit, and relink to the opposite version, back and forth at any time, by highlighting the clips that you want to link your timeline to, slecting your timeline, and choosing Clip/Relink/Selected Items in ALL open bins.

    Re: Proxy file creation

    Hi smrpix

    thanks for the suggestion, but my question isn't related to workflow but to file creation.  That is I start from a custom file format jp2k encoded and export my clip in DNxHD 120 mxf wrapped (not using Media Composer, but inside my application). At this point I obtain a file that is linked by Media Composer.  If I want to create the proxy version of this file at the same time (once I've decompressed my essence I can recompress it in DNxHD for high quality version and in H264 for proxy version) I dindn't figure out how to tell Media Composer that a file is a proxy version.  That is let's say I start from a clip named "testClip.blt".  I decompress it and generate two files testClip.mxf.  One file is in DNxHD 120 (for high quality) and another is in H264 for proxy version. Well, how to tell media composer that one is high quality and another is proxy ?  Should I set the same GUID ?
