I would like some more info about the import media proces in FCPX
when/why is 'create optimized media' neccecary?
I don't know if I must set this setting ore not.
I always set 'create proxy media' and 'copy files to FC event folder' to ON
this I can understand why
But when 'create optimized media' is on, FCPX takes a loooooong time and muuuuuch space.
Is there anything that works better or faster when 'create optimized media' is set to ON?
I do not understand why these oversised files would be helpful when editing...?
for example; a few days of skiing with friends results in +100GB footage.
when set 'create optimized media' to ON, I must wait extremely long to convert, and also the space on my macbook pro is too small (750gig, 500gig free).
when using an extarnal disc, the editing proces is far from smooth.
I use almost always '.mov' files
taken with HD action cams (drift), Iphones,...
thanks in advance
