Sounds disgusting, but it’s actually good! This is when we say the edit looks great, so we’re going to reimport all the footage used at high quality. Previously on A House for Marge, we’d been working with proxy footage.
This is actually doubly exciting for us, as this is the first time we’ve ever done this sort of thing. Previously, we’d been using tape as recording media, which is finicky when trying to handle a proxy cut, plus the fact that Final Cut Express doesn’t do that. Now, with tapeless media and Final Cut Pro, we can save disk space with a proxy cut.
