I just received RED footage shot at 4096x2048. I plan to edit that in the Avid. Without putting a resize on it (besides the RENDER Half Res Standard), it is not 16x9 format, thereby placing black bars on the top and bottom.

I wanted then to resize the image, cropping off the left and right, to fit it into the 16x9 workspace without squeezing the image. I used these settings:

RENDER; HALF RES Standard
TC: EXTERNAL
LOOK SOURCE: CAMERA
COLOR SPACE: REC709
GAMMA: REC 709

RESIZE:
CROP: DO NOTHING
SCALE CHECK CHECKBOX 1920x1080
FIT: Height
RESAMPLE: CATMULROM

OUTPUT
QTMOVIE
H.264
REEL ID FULL NAME

The oddity I found, however, is that there is a slight color shift towards the magenta side. It's not an issue, as these are just dailies to edit from. I would just like to know why there is such a difference in color. Because the color space and the gamma was REC 709 both times I exported as H264 Quicktimes both times, I can only point the finger at the resize causing the color shift. Perhaps the Resample selection?

Could it be build 20 or higher?

What happens when you use an editing codec like ProRes? If the same- it could be a difference from the metadata settings or as Uli suggests a side effect of the new color science in Build 20+ which is not fully supported across all conversion applications presently.
