I'm trying to work with a bunch (hundreds) of 4k HEVC video clips, and so far it seems like my laptop is a bit too slow to edit them effectively. I have read guides that talk about ingesting proxy files, which is great but involves running Adobe Media encoder on my macbook.
Ideally I don't want to do any proxy file encoding on my macbook since it slows down my laptop too much. I want to create the proxy files on a separate unix server using ffmpeg, then copy them onto my laptop when they're done. Is this possible?
