    Difference between using Proxy and Video Quality menu...

    What is the difference between using the Video Quality menu settings in the timeline (yellow, yellow/green, green, green/10bit) and the new Proxy settings in the Format tab.  Again, nothing in the help file about this new feature.  What's the difference?  When playing back footage in a 4k project, both seemed to have the same effect of smoothing playback.  Is one recommended over the other and why?

    Thanks,

    Andi

    For playback the difference is minor. However the big difference is when rendering. The timeline setting has no effect on render quality. it's rendered and the media creation setting. But the proxy timeline setting produces lower quality renders so they play easier.

    When you swithc the project back to no proxy you need to re-render at the finishing quality.

    Thanks Pat,

    I just saw this info in their HiRes workflow guide.  It should also be included in the MC help file. 

    It seems like a bit of a recipe for disaster, especially if it is someone else doing the final render eg. an assistant who has not been made aware or checked the proxy setting.  Hopefully there is some warning that pops up when you are rendering to tell you that you are rendering to a proxy resolution?
