dgwvideo I read the white paper... and it all makes sense. It seems that I have tighter specs the they do. Measure twice cut once.
Thanks for the link to the ProRes PDF. I had a link to a webpage that was not as specific as this.
Completely understood. The footage was shot around 5 years ago. Canon Cine Platform to outboard 10-bit recorders, per Netflix/Apple TV specs. Of course over five years the specs have changed and now they are Netflix/Apple requiring 442HQ HD with a bitrate ~ 220 Mbps in their QC protocol. The project has been 4-walled with DPC and from what I have seen, it looks fine.
I can export it out of Compressor as uncompressed 10-bit (or 8-bit) but the file size is over 500 GBs. But that is a bit obsessive.
I have a client that requires a ProRes 442HQ HD file that has a bitrate is 220 Mbps. The files I was given to work with are ProRes 442HQ HD with an average bitrate of 192 Mbps.
Is there anyway to uprez them? A Compressor workflow?
I understand the quality issues, but we are not going up that much.
Thx in advance
>>>Is this the same frame each time or is it truly random? Is the position of the dropped frame in roughly the same timeline region of the connected clip? Does this happen with only a single connected clip or does it happen with more than one?
It will drop the same frame. If I cut the main timeline and move the b-roll down, it renders fine.
>Has this always been happening or did it start recently? What version of macOS are you running?
About a month ago. Nothing new was updated.
If you render the timeline (CMD+A to select all, then CTRL+R to render), then export it as a separate step does this still happen? What codec are you exporting to?
Yep, still happens.

>It also wouldn't hurt to delete all generated library files and rebuild those.
Done that. Do it a lot.
>Is it possible you have two adjacent connected clips and there's a single-frame gap between them which you recently noticed?
Nope it is one solid clip with no
>By "during rendering", do you mean after rendering or after exporting,
After sharing as Apple calls it.
>a single-frame gap appears in the connected clip which shows the underlying timeline?
Yes that is what is happening.
Source files are ProRes 442 HQ 1920x1080
Shared files are ProRes 442 HQ 1920x1080 OR H264 1920x1080
If happens with both files.
Would I have less issues / better quality to export with Compressor?
Drive connection is a Thunderbolt 2
Attached are the speed test on the internal and external drives
But when I render, I get random frame drops. Like 1 or 2 in a 20 minute segment.
I have no frames drops when working in FCPX.
I will have a B-roll clip placed above the magnetic time line and during rendering, one frame from that clip will be dropped and the video from the magnetic timeline will be revealed.
