    transcode at low res and then retranscode at high at the end

    Hello i am thinking wheter is possibile to use this method in order to save some disk space (i don't know about time)

    i was thinking to transcode all the clips at the beginning to a low res...work at the sequence and when it is finished i would like to the best res, so that only the portion i need woul be transcoded, and in th emeanwhile i have saved space

    i don't know if this is possibile and if it has a sense

    thanks

    Yes, and that is the recommended workflow.

    Once your sequence is locked:

    1. Open your bins that are linked to the original footage (not transcoded)
    2. Highlight all linked clips
    3. Right-click your sequence and select Relink...
    4. Choose "To Selected Items in All Open Bins" and Relink. (A new sequence will be created with .Relinked.01.)
    5. Select the sequence and transcode it to your desired higher resolution. (Another new sequence will be created with .Transcoded.01).

    When your picture is "approved" and it's not going to change anymore.

    You can transcode to high-resolution with some handles if you want, which will give you flexibility to tweak, but in general, high-res'ing should wait until you're no longer makiing picture changes.
