Editing Using Proxy Files

In this mode, proxy data that has been optimized for editing, for example, by lowering image quality from the original high-resolution data is used. You can proceed with editing more effortlessly since the load placed on the CPU during editing can be lightened.

When only the proxy or source including the proxy has been checked out for checkout field editing, the project automatically opens in the proxy mode.
