Make a New Bin

Title the bin "Export to Resolve"

Duplicate the Final Pic lock sequence

Rename it so it is obviously your final timeline Ex: Export to Resolve - Final 04_10_18  Dates are helpful here!!

Move the timeline into the newly created Export Bin you just made

If you were using Proxies

Reconnect to the 4K media, uncheck the "Enable proxies" under the "Premiere Pro CC > Settings > Media..." menu check box

Click OK

To check that the files are being referenced properly to the 4K media you can "right click" on the file in the Project Window and choose "Reveal in Finder"

Will now show you that the files are linked to the XDROOT folder using the 4K native data that you backed up off the Sony F5 SXS card

Now you can color correct and export at 4K resolution

Right click the timeline and duplicate it again!! Yes do this because we are going to delete the audio tracks next.
Title this one the same but put "No Audio"

Load the copied timeline by double clicking it. It'll load into the Sequence Window

Get all your video tracks down to 2 tracks if possible.

3 at the most.

NOTE you do not need subtitles for color correction so remove those

Lock all your video tracks

Select all the audio in the timeline

"click on command a"

all audio tracks will be selected and delete them

Select all your audio tracks in the timeline. Click on the "Delete" key this will remove all of the audio clips from the timeline

Then go to >Sequence > and choose Delete Tracks

Choose Audio Tracks > Check Delete Audio Tracks >All Empty Tracks >OK

Next get the video tracks down to two video tracks

Move all the video clips down from V3, V4 and etc. to V1 and V2

Then go to >Sequence > and choose Delete Tracks

Choose Video Tracks > Check Delete Video Tracks >All Empty Tracks >OK

If you were using Multicam select the sequence and then flatten it (right click on the selected video track and select Multicam->Flatten)

Best to bake them into the timeline as high quality clips before you export.

Choose a location to save the file

click on "Save"
