RED-FCP media managing
on Jul 16, 2009 at 4:20:10 pm

Hi all,

I´m doing online editing on Red media and reconfroming the media to grade as RED í fcs-color. My tests look good but the process is consuming too much time and disk space. The problem seems to be in the media manager. The log and transfer processes not only the shots used in my edited sequences but the whole original clip with a duration up to 12 minutes. When I send the sequences to color I everything looks fine but then after grading the seq., Color renders the whole shots not just the edited parts. How can I consolidate the clips to save time and space?

Thanks in advance for replying me,
All the best.

This is all covered in the RED FCS2 Whitepaper on RED's support page. They talk about how to do a batch transfer from RED footage. Check it out.

Thanks Russell.
I believe I followed the workflow 2 process on the Whitepaper step by step. I was just reading through it again and I cant find what I may have done wrongly. Creating the seq-setting, create offline in Media manager, checking all the right boxes...doing th batch capture in the Log and transfer using Native setting in the RED plug-in... I´m still stuck with way too much media for re-ingesting and rendering in color.
Good to hear from you though. Let me know if you figure out what I´ve missed.

hmmm....my problem could be caused by speed effects.

Try a smaller project with no speed fx and see if it works.

Just did but it´s the same...for every short clip, Log and tranfer takes the whole media-file and once in Color it renders the whole shot too. It kind of drives me mad...
Could it be the framrate? I´m using 25 fps. The Whitepaper recommends 23.98 or 24 for this workflow I believe...?

As far as I know from posting this same question on RedUser, Monkey Extract and Crimson are the only programs that will uprez only the part of the R3D used in the sequence and not the whole R3D.

No, it works fine here in 25 fps.

Anna,

I never use the "official" worckflow, try using redrushes to prores instead L&T.

Anyway the send to color from FCP do not work allways, use a EDL 3600 "simple" export from FCP, then import it in color, said color where is the original media when the EDL import settings appear, and color will import the sequence much more accurate and render only the part of the clips used (if you don´t use handless)

Basically I use this workflow every days and works like a charm.

all the best,
Vico


Render? beer time.
