GETTING FILES FOR EDITING
On the SETUP->VFS screen there are two Configuration preset examples for creating proxy files for editing.
1. Codex FCP Editorial (preset) - this will create ProRes 422LT files. There is no Scaling, LUT or Burn-In applied by default. This preset can be edited to use for your project.
2. Codex Avid Editorial (preset) - this will create DNxHD 422 115/120 files. There is no LUT or Burn-In applied by default. This preset can be edited to use for your project.
Choose the correct Configuration for your project, then copy the files from the Codex VFS drive:
If you need to change any settings for the files edit the configuration using these steps:
The preset configurations can be customised for your project. To make the configuration suitable for your project select COPY CONFIG to create a copy of this configuration, and rename it for your project:
Note: any renamed configuration cannot have the first word ‘Codex’.
Once the configuration has been renamed for your project, for each file type click to select it and then click EDIT. This opens up more options for that File Type.
DNxHD files will always be scaled to 1920x1080. If setting up ProRes files (starting with FCP Editorial preset) it is also generally recommended to set Scaling as Fixed, Height to 1920, and Width to 1080. Applying LUTs and Burn-Ins is detailed in the VFS Guide.
