    Let me import 4K media without changing project format

    Please put a checkbox to preserve the resolution of the source material and give the appropriate codecs for import.  Dont make me change the format of the project to import 4K media to use in HD project utilizing frameflex!

    Now possible in 8.4 - transcode to source resolution, in ANY project.

    No it isnt.  I want to use the DNXHR Hq Codec and utillize frameflex.  If I keep the project set at 1080p, then the codec choices are dnx, no ndxHR.

    Re: Let me import 4K media without changing project format

    Yes, it is - it's a feature I've personally used numerous times already.

    Are you using "Link Media," or the legacy "import" way of bringing media in?  I admit I haven't used the "import" function for video for quite some time now.  Assuming you're not using MC 5.5.2 as your system specs indicate, but rather 8.4 now, correct?

    The proper procedure here would be:

    HD project, LINK your raw media.  Now, you're using your original 4K media.  Use FrameFlex as needed.

    If you choose to transcode to its source resolution at DNxHR, you simply transcode your raw media in your bin - and in the transcode dialog, choose the option in the drop-down menu to transcode at "Source" dimensions.

    Re: Let me import 4K media without changing project format

    Im importing clips from aFterffects that I created from the porcess you mentioned above, I specifically stated "Import", not  "Link".  I "Linked" the greenscreen footage and the plates, Transcoded to DNXHR, did rough cut, relinked to original RED files, sent to Aftereffects and did composite.  Brought the footage back in sections to avid in 4K so I could use frameflex for client edit approval.   If I forget to chanhe projext to 4K, the AVID converts to 1080p, not full 4K.  Aslo, do you have the same problem where frameflex sometimes show in timeline, the keyframes are there in effect editor, but results dont show in timeline?
