This may be a stupid question, I´ve searched the manual but couldn´t find the answer.


I´ve noticed that playback while editing was stuttering, so I figured I go to preferences and change playback so that it plays from proxy files. All my clips now turns red with an exclamation mark on them. I select them and transcode to proxy files. The playback is now without stuttering.


My question now is, when I export my finished movie, will FCPX use the original media or the proxy files?

Second question: What´s the difference between optimize file and create proxy files?
