Conforming red, and MAC to a PC

Hello Creative Cow Community,
A long time client of mine has taken the leap to RED. He has asked me to perform color correction on a 7 minute short. I have never worked with RED, and run a very low tech operation(Two PC’S an old pc just for odds and ends, like capture and my other is 2.67 GHz, 12 gig’s ram, no capture card). My client has completed his edit in FCP on a Mac, and I work on Avid and Premiere on a PC, I will therefore not be able to Import the EDL from FCP into Redcine. I am looking to conform the footage and take it in full sized (2k). Is Redcine capable of importing a non-EDL? And if so, what is the least expensive software for conforming from FCP on a mac? I got a quote on Scratch which is out of my ball park. Thanks in advance.

Devin Smith

P.S. Is there a better way to move the EDL from FCP on a Mac to a PC?

If the edit is not too complex, you can export a XML from FCP and read it with Premiere Pro 9.1 .But please understand that RED footage is quite demanding during renders…

[Devin Smith] "My client has completed his edit in FCP on a Mac, "

Did he edit with the QT proxy files or did he create ProRes files using Log and Transfer or REDRushes/Clipfinder?

[Devin Smith] "and I work on Avid and Premiere on a PC,"

How are you going to do the color? In Avid or Premiere? What type of files do you want? R3D files or DNxHD files or DPX files or something else?

I'm sure there is a way to accomplish what you're trying to do, but there are still so many options, it would help if you gave some specifics.
