Any thoughts on this combination? Is Red Rocket still required for 2k editing with a CS5 MPE? Then when we are doing grading with Resolve prior to finishing is a Red Rocket a pre-requisite?

The rig would be based on the Mac Pro Westmere 2010 models.

Hi Dexter,

Resolve on a Mac Pro does not derive any benefit from a RED Rocket card in processing 2K files unless those files happen to be RED r3d files. If the 2K files are RED r3d files, then the RED Rocket will accelerate decoding and debayering of the r3d files and realtime performance will be achieved at full resolution and premium debayer quality.

According to the Premiere Pro CS5.0.2 notes, Premiere Pro CS5.0.2 only uses the RED Rocket card for accelerated decoding and debayering of RED r3d files and the card is not used for 2K files in any other format.
