FINALLY, a reason to use a quicktime reference movie!

I’ve known about reference movies for a long time, but I have never had the opportunity to use one before today. I am working on a project that is roughly 2k x 1k and uses a still sequence from cinema 4d. Final cut doesn’t really play very well with image sequences, so I used quicktime 7 to import the image sequence and export a reference movie. I saved a TON of disk space, and a fair bit of image quality as well, seeing as it doesn’t have any additional compression on it.

For the unaquainted: reference movies are basically a pointer that tells quicktime “hey go play from this file to this file” without actually copying the original source. If I were to share the ref movie without the source, then it would be useless. That is the reason why I have never wound a use for them before – they are easy to break, and it is usually much easier to just use the actual files.

top 4 points about the new final cut pro announcement

1) price: $299

2) release date: June

3) no interruption for rendering. everything (including transcoding) is done in the background.

4) sample level precision for audio (FINALLY!)

for more insights, check out the logs of @fcpsupermeet as he was live tweeting (via text) better than even a teenage girl during the announcement, or just look anywhere on the internet. It may just end up being big news…

Hello all, this is my little corner of "the cow"! I'm a vfx artist and I work in final cut, nuke and after effects. I love finding workflow hacks, and I'm always looking for a new keyboard shortcut! For more posts check out You Down With FCP
