The speed of the transcode then becomes the next hurdle… Resolve could barely muster 10fps and averaged 7fps. That means hours, potentially days of transcoding time for less than a day of shooting. It isn’t much better on a Mac Pro as it isn’t optimised for MJPEG and it isn’t very good under Windows either. Resolve can transcode 4K raw faster than this. Premiere and Adobe Media Encoder took 3 minutes to transcode a 1 min 1D C clip to 4K ProRes, so around the same speed as Resolve… simply not good enough unfortunately.

transcode to 4k prores over 3x faster with Final Cut Pro X
