Crimson Work-flow No-Flow

Hi,
Just testing out the Crimson worflow 9.2 demo to see if I like it enough to buy it. I have a big Red project coming up and I'm experimenting w different work-flows.

I transcoded a bunch of clips with RedRushes into Pro-Res Half Res (High)

I cut some stuff together in FCP. Imported an XML into Crimson and Crimson cannot match my list to the R3D files. (Tried a lot of things and still no go.)

So undaunted I matched them manually. Exported a cowboy intermediate XML, and Created Intermediates for my clips.

My clips all load into Redcine just fine but Redcine cannot construct a build with my Crimsoned XML.
(I tried all the recommended settings too.)

Crimson seems easy enough but it really failed to work.

I compared the timecode to random R3d clips in Redcine to Clips in my project and theres a big difference.

Also clips transcoded with Redrushes have two different timecodes?

I'm totally new to RED and really have been studying the workflow but I'm stumped.

Not sure which of the three software applications is failing.

Have you tried Clipfinder instead- it works for me (Crimson does too when everything is setup right)

Clipfinder is my next experiment. Just really bummed you need third party software just to get an xml into Redcine. RED should really step up to plate on this.

I suspect your right that something was not set-up right. Think it's a metadata issue but still a little surprised considering there doesn't seem to be very any options to make adjustments to metadata with the various transcoding tools from RED.

[Eamon Glennon] "Clipfinder is my next experiment."

Clipfinder will replace going into REDCine completely. You can do you color work in Clipfinder (about as much control as REDCine) then export your dpx files.

What will you take your DPX files into for Color? I don't really consider Clipfinder or REDCine color finishing applications.
