Sorry to ask an obvious question. I've searched and searched but 4K and HD and Quad HD and Apple Color are very common terms!

I've gone through the FCS round trip pipeline with 4K 2:1 many times and 4K 16:9 twice, with the RED ONE and MX.

I have been working in doc pretty much since the launch of EPIC so I'm a bit behind :(, and I apologize for that, because we've been shooting Sony.

So, will Color 1.5 support Scarlet's 4K HD/Quad HD resolution when trying to follow the FCS roudtrip pipeline from RED's whitepaper?

Thanks everyone.

If its the same RDM structure, I don't see why not, but don't expect any updates.

Last night, I conducted a complete test of the entire the roundtrip pipeline (I do this every time I start a new project following this workflow, just to be diligent) following the white paper, using an edit sequence that is 3 or 4 cuts long consisting of media from different clips.

Everything worked as it has worked for me in the past using 4K 2:1 and 4K 16:9, except that once I opened the FCP REDCODE XML in Color 1.5, the viewer was black. I could not get a image to show up in the viewer.

The clips were on the sequence, I could see the correct thumbnails for each clip and even the RED tab was accessible for making changes to the Primary, but I could get an image up in the viewer.

Its possible then that the build is incompatible with the COLOR Redcode plugin decoder.
Try navigating directly to the media in the COLOR Setup browser... you may get a diagnostic there.

Otherwise, looks like a candidate for Resolve and that may be the end of the road for Apple's grade offering.

Have you installed the latest red fcp plugin? Updated not too long ago. Odd but they continue to support color...

I believe Scarlet uses the same color science as Epic, so I'm not sure Color can read it, though I haven't tried. I finished a film last year in which I had lots of issues with RED files and Color. You might look over this blog post of mine for an alternate workflow that went quite well.
