Yes. I’ve been reading all that I’ve found about this subject in this forum, and use the “Convert to Edit-Friendly” is an easy way to use “proxy” files. Other people are using the HuffYUV codec for this. Someone suggested use AC3 for audio instead AAC or FLAC.
And, as if you use lossless codecs, you get really great files, common sense says that you are better using a SSD than a HDD.
Another tip I’ve read is deactivate IFC if you use h264 for your files, that can decrease CPU usage dramatically.
Anyway, it would be great if someone with real knowledge write a guide to do it, because maybe using the “Convert to Edit-Friendly” presets let you have all these tips (no IFC etc) implemented.
