Choosing Between Online and Offline Workflows

Given these two very different approaches to editing with Final Cut Pro, which should you choose? In general, an online workflow tends to benefit short projects, whereas an offline workflow tends to favor longer projects. Online workflows are ideal for projects with quick turnarounds; offline workflows are ideal for projects with longer turnarounds.

Advantages of an Online Workflow

  • Final Effects and color correction—Because you are editing with your final resolution, you are aware of how your effect or color correction will look in your final output. You will not need to use a temporary effect or color correction.

  • Simplicity—Once you have captured your media, there is no need to recapture the media at a higher resolution prior to your output.

  • Efficiency—Because an online workflow tends to require fewer steps, the final project takes less time.
