Creating Proxies in Kyno

 

Once you have Kyno open, Drill down to your storage location and select all the files that you would like transcoded into proxies. Right click >Convert >Editing >ProRes 422 Proxy

 

 

A Convert and Transcode Media menu box will appear. 

 

Select the Directory that you would like the proxy files to go to. It’s highly recommended that you create another folder for proxies.

 

  

 

Next, choose your Conversion Presets by clicking on the settings on the right-hand side. 

 

Change the settings for the video and audio encode based on your team's workflow. For our remote sessions, we like to keep file sizes down so we went with 1280X720. 

 

 Once you have all the settings to your liking, click start to begin the transcode. 

 

Your transcodes will begin and Kyno has a real-time Progress bar that shows when those files are complete. 

You will see the Proxy files in your folder directory as they populate.
