Capturing or Recompressing Media to an OfflineRT Format
Once you’ve selected the appropriate Easy Setup, you can capture OfflineRT clips using
your camcorder or deck. For more information about capturing, see Volume I,
Chapter 17, “Capturing Your Footage to Disk.”
When your system is set up correctly, you can log and capture using device control as
usual. During capturing, video is transcoded from its original format to the OfflineRT
format and written to your scratch disk.
Alternatively, you can capture your footage at full resolution and then transcode, or
recompress it, to the appropriate OfflineRT format using the Media Manager. For more
information, see “
Example: Recompressing Media Files for an Entire Project for Editing
on a Portable Computer
” on page 114.
