Red 2k workflow
on Oct 6, 2009 at 7:50:21 pm

Im working on a short film shot on RED at 4k 2.1 - laying back to HDCam SR.

Offline has been done using pro Res 422 HQ clips converted using RED Rushes to 1080x1920.

The plan is to convert the xml of the fnal sequence using clipfinder to point back to the r3d's for the color grade and send back to FCP for layback.

What is the best codec to render out to. Can I go 2k 444 dual link back to the SR - (is that just a question of linking the dual link output from the Kona to the HDCam SR and laying back?) How does the 2k frame size work if your going to HDcam SR (1920x1080) I know the Kona will convert on output but whats the point of rendering out to 2k if you're laying back to HD?


Help and advice appreciated

It's up to you- I'd suggest ProRes HQ at 1080p would be more than enough for most people's eye.

Thanks Noah - the Director wants the best possible - money no object but mastering on HDCam SR - Im confused as I keep hearing master on HDCam SR at 2k and Im not quite sure how you can do this as 2k is not HD?

If I rendered out Pro Res 444 and laid back to HDCam SR Dual link is this the best option? I presume Ill get black bands. Do they compensate for this when projecting?

You can output 2K to SR through the Kona.

if You shot 2:1 you would have to blow up slightly to eliminate the back bars but it also depends if you are doing a film out that is scope.

You for best quality, you would render out to one of the 2k presets in Color, send to FCP and then output the 2K timeline from FCP through the Kona to SR.

Sean,

Follow this exactly:

Then what I do is I set the output in Color to 1920x1080 and render out a 4444 Apple Prores, sent eh sequence back to FCP and play it out the Kona dual link to HDCAM SR.

THis way all of the correct scaling is handled by Color instead of the Kona.

I would also remind you to add some level of sharpening to the RED footage in Color.
