We did fix Red version 3.02 so that you can correctly render fields when you apply as a generator. Unfortunately, this fix does not affect synthetic media such as titles. (Originally we had thought it would). Synthetic media (titles and splines) always frame render when created with the generator. To field render titles, you need to apply Red as a filter. However, you can apply Red as a filter to an FCP slug which gives you some flexibility to span multiple video clips. Below are details on the fix from our release notes.

Red 3.0.2 will now correctly field render video in the wells when using a Red FCP Generator. The media in the input wells for a Red Generator should match the FCP sequence size. Both the Red project size and the size of the well video appear in Red at the FCP sequence size. If the well media is not the same as the FCP sequence size, fields won't render correctly.

In the case of Red applied as a filter, the Red project size is determined by the size of the filtered media. The size of the filtered media needs to match any video in the wells. This will maintain the integrity of fields since Red doesn't allow host video inputs of various sizes within the same effect.

In a case that requires media sources whose size will not match the FCP sequence size (Generator) or the Filter media size, the best approach is to import that media directly into the Boris timeline from disk (rather than from the wells in FCP). This will provide you with full flexibility for dealing with non-standard size images, field interpretation, and oversize images.
