Logic 9 What compressed video format for scoring film?

    I'd be interested to hear recommendations of compressed video formats for scoring in Logic.

    The original film is Apple HDV 1080i.

    How is Logic with H.264 ? Are there any stability issues with particular codecs?

    i've used 264 with no problems, just make sure the frame rate stays the same.

    Ditto here. H.264 runs perfectly both in Logic 9 and ProTools 8.

    I find that H.264 is too CPU intensive and slow for scrubbing so I use the Apple ProRes codec, which thankfully is also quick to encode. The downside is that it produces a large filesize but it's pro's heavily outweigh the con.

    I guess if it ain't broke, don't fix it.......

    But, I would not recommend using a compressed file format. With Terabyte hard drives going for $100.00 or so, storage costs pertaining to large files are not too harsh. You'll get the best results using uncompressed files so the computer CPU isn't burning up cycles uncompressing the video when it could use it on some CPU-pig plug-in of your choice. Better results are also achieved streaming the video from a separate hard drive on its own bus.
