Where is it best to process R3D files?
Coming from a stills background, there are quite a few software options to choose from eg Camera Raw, Lightroom or Aperture, but they all do the same thing - process the raw flat-looking image into something usable.

As I understand it Redcine is for color correcting as is Color which apparently has more to it and is more intuitive. But neither of these are regarded as processors as such, just color correctors.

Any pointers, much appreciated.

- The REDCODE codec is only decodable by others, RED allows no encoding to it other than in their cameras.
- 4K files don't make much sense, they are huge and only playable in a special format in digital theatres. Plus, the RED doesn't really generate 4K of optical resolution.
- You can batch process files for HDTV with REDrushes or Clipfinder (free) or with Apple's Color or Adobe's CS4.

Yeah there are many ways to go- you could ingest ProRes and color correct in Color with ProRes- which loses RAW but goes much faster in terms of editing performance. Or edit Proxy or QuickTime Native wrapped and use the RED tab in Color. There's not one answer. That's why I wrote a book about this. :)
