Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Rendering a master to archive, part of Creating a Short Film: 08 Editing.
- [Instructor] When all is said and done with your film,…you're probably gonna wanna create an archival render…that can be used as a master copy…in case there needs to be another render made,…or you just need a pristine final copy.…I don't know that there's a gold standard…for film archival.…For me personally, I use a QuickTime file…with ProRes HQ compression.…This is a very high-quality format…that can also be played back easily.…Now, when selecting an archival format,…it's also a good idea to make sure…the format is really ubiquitous.…
If you select some neat, new file format…or a compression method that doesn't stick around,…it might be difficult to work with your file…a few years from now.…And ProRes compression is such a standard in video editing.…It has been for so many years that…it seems like a safe bet to me.…But as with everything in the filmmaking world,…your needs might differ than mine.…But this is how I've archived my films…including the assurance.…
