Apple ProRes workflow

We have a large amount of RED footage entering our studio. We usually need the footage extremely quickly and I am trying to determine the most efficient workflow for creating 1920x1080 Apple ProRes proxies for the offline edit.

I have tried importing RED files into FCP through Log and Transfer, but the end result is an unusable 2k file, costing time.

I am currently trying to export directly from the proxy included with the RED file through QT and Compressor, both with dimension limitations to 1920x1080.

Both the frame size and timecode are essential to the end result I'm looking for.

Who has the best method for creating Apple ProRes QTs at 1920x1080 with timecode from RED footage?

Option 1: Clipfinder will export on a new Mac Pro somewhere around 14-16 frames per second if you select the right settings.

Option 2: Buy a REDRocket card and use RocketCine. This will export at real-time or faster.

Clipfinder is great, you can even let it render on several machines.

But RED rocket is probably even better …

If you have a lot of red media coming into your facility and need to turn around ProRes 1080 files fast, then I can't recommend RedRocket enough. Yes it costs money, but if you're dealing with this media everyday, the time the RedRocket will save you is well worth the price. Once you have it, you won't know how you were transcoding files with out it. Just my 2 cents.

best regards,

Yup- you need RedRocket- best bang for the buck there is if you're doing more than very casual RED encoding...

I want to get a Red Rocket but I've never talked to anyone who actually has one. Does anyone have first hand experience good or bad?

We've have 2, they're wonderful! If you need it, you won't regret it.

We have a couple Red Rocket Cards installed, and use them constantly, the speed you get from this hardware acceleration is priceless, not to mention all your footage is processed out with a full debayer. We do a lot of Red post for a national sports network, and being able to output the mass amount of footage has quickly paid for the investment. Another more recent update to the Red Rocket method is the straight playback RedCine-X to a HDCAM or HDCAM SR deck using PsF frame rates.

We usually get asked to deliver digital files on a drive in DNxHD format so they can start cutting the material immediatly, and as well create an HDCAM archive copy.

works wonderfully.
