Vegas 12 -- RED support, 5K, fake anamorphic etc

Hi all,

In two weeks I will shoot a short feature and my DP will use it's RED Epic.

He sent me a test file and after dropping it in Vegas I do have a few questions :

-Is it me or version 12 doesn't support 5K project? It doesn't appear in the projects templates and if I enter it manually Vegas will automatically revert to the 4K template after clicking on OK.

-Also, most likely related to above, after dropping the R3D file on the timeline the project automatically set itself to the 4K template but the aspect ratio doesn't seem right. I've tried all of them and it always feels squeezed. know why?

-I am also thinking of shooting in anamorphic but with these two things already mentioned the test he sent me looked rather funky in Vegas. Also he had to use an adapter and that result in a loss of sharpness. Would you still shoot in anamorphic or fake it in post? I've come across a post were John Rofrano clearly explains how to create an anamorphic ration even though the footage is in 16/9.

Thanks for thoughts

Sorry, Vegas's resolution is presently limited to 4K.
You cant override that.
