Proxies

Proxies are lower resolution images that you substitute for your high-resolution images so you can work faster. Because the images are smaller, you drastically decrease your disk-access time, your memory consumption, and your processing time. Naturally, your quality will suffer as well, which is why proxies are generally for testing purposes. Once you are done assembling your script with proxies, you return your script to full resolution to render your final output. You can also use proxies for temporarily viewing anamorphic images in a flattened or unsqueezed space.

In this example, you have the full-resolution image and a ⅓ proxy. In the following images, you can see that the proxy takes up one-ninth of the space, meaning potentially only 11 percent of the processing time, memory usage, and disk activity.
