A basic question about the FCPX and HF workflow
I edit in FCPX. I want to bring in a shot from my FCPX edit into HFU2. I work in ProRes HQ (ProRes 422). So in FCPX, I render out the clip in ProRes HQ. I open it in HFU2, do my comps/effects the HFU2 and then from HFU2, I render it once again in ProRes HQ. Now I import that into my FCPX timeline and continue to edit.
So my question is: Is that how it should be done? And more importantly: Do I get any compression and lose data in doing this process?
