REDrushes Look Source question...help!
on Jul 23, 2009 at 9:26:32 pm

Hello

So this project I am working on has 4k 23.98fps & 2k 60 & 90fps (slow-mo) footage the majority consisting of the 4K footage.

I used REDalert to see what color & gamma space each shot was taken in because I was told by a camera assistant on the shoot that some stuff with not shot in Redspace but instead in REC709.

SO my question is whether or not i have to set each clip to be the corresponding correct color & gamma space OR can i just set both tabs to LOOK SOURCE for it to see what spaces it should be??

please anyone who can respond quickly i need to leave and set a giant batch render in Redrushes.

Also is there a limit to how many clips I can add to the bin?? i have it set to use all my 8 cores and do the max amount (6) at a time.

One More Question:

When in REDrushes and adding clips if the folder contains multiple .r3d files because its spanned will REDrushes see the entire folder as one clip or do i have to add each r3d from that one folder as individual clips ??

It will make it one clip.

Look Source will set each clip to the what the camera was set at. You can check it by opening it up in REDAlert. Or you can just choose to set it to what you want it processed as in REDRushes.

Also look into Clip Finder. It's like REDRushes but has many more options. Still uses REDLine for rendering like REDRushes.

Ok so even if I leave it set to look source it will know which clips were shot rec709 or redspace??

Yes. It will read the metadata that the camera attached to it.

6 clips at a time is OK for balancing the load on most McPros. it will start the next clip(s) once it has finished others.

Clipfinder allows your own load balancing, which depends not only on the number of CPUs. but RAM and disk speed too.

Great help you guys thank you.

Also curious to know how the multiple core processing differs in clipfinder compaired to redrushes - as an example let's say it's a mazes out MacBook pro laptop and one ofthe new macproproc towers with 8 or 16 gb of ram what settings are different with clipfinder??

I assume they both work well with XML out of fcp prores project for grading the original r3d footage in Color and sending either back to fcp for output or exporting files alone not for
a roundtrip with fcp.

Sent from my iPhone so sorry in advance.

Both max out the machines pretty well, Clipfinder has some adjustments for cores per task per core. The optimum depends on other factors like disk troughput as well.

REDrushes can't conform XMLs for Color neither does it offer Colorfixer if you edit with proxies.
