We shot some stuff on a Red Epic. The footage is on a 2TB Hitachi HD. Now I need to edit the footage. I can't transfer all the footage to my MacPro desktop because it is too many TB and will take too long. I also tried editing the footage straight from the external Hitachi HD before and it is very laggy and no good.
So what is the preferred workflow for this situation? I've heard something about exporting proxies or low-res video from the original footage via RedCine-X Pro. Then using that low-res footage to edit in Premiere. Then I guess export some data that will link to the original footage, or name the low-res files the same filenames as the original footage?
I'm lost and need a workflow.
