Which blackmagic - RED easysetup to use on my RED job?
on Sep 29, 2009 at 1:22:19 pm

Hello all.
I hope someone can advise me on this. I have just purchased a new dual 2.66ghz quadcore mac-pro
with 8gb ram and ati 4870 graphics as well as a decklink multibridge pro2 and G-tech g-speed espro xl 12TB raid storage.
All of this hardware has been bought to edit a short film shot on RED. The footage is being shot at both 4k 16x9 25frames and 4k 2:1 25 frames with a couple of shots at 2k 50frames. I have downloaded the latest software for the multibridge pro2 and I was going to use one of their easy setup options to configure the project but I am not sure which one to use. We want to transcode the rushes to prores 4:4:4:4 as we have been told the raid can handle it.

Here is a list of the choices of blackmagic easy setup options:

Blackmagic 2K 1024P 25 - RED with Apple ProRes (HQ)
Blackmagic 2K 1080P 25 - 10 BIT RGB 4:4:4
Blackmagic 2K 1080P 25 - Apple ProRes 4444
Blackmagic 2K 1152P 25 - RED with apple ProRes 4444
Blackmagic 2K 1556P 25 - 10Bit RGB 4:4:4
Blackmagic 2K 1556P 25 - Apple ProRes 4444

I would appreciate any advice on this matter

There is more to that workflow than just selecting FCP setting.

You should research a bit deeper, how and why.

It can not be discussed in 2 sentences.
There is tons of details to it.

All best,
