Metadata for Framerate
on Mar 11, 2010 at 10:30:12 am

Hi All,

I have some high-speed RED files which I want to speed up to playback in realtime. Is there any software that displays the framerate of a clip? Does the metadata even retain this information? I can't find it anywhere!
Clipfinder has a fps column, but this is actually displaying the timebase. Same with RedCineX (build 158).

Any ideas are much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Alex Elkins

The REDLine command line program that comes with the RED software like Red Alert! etc does this. Google for RED REDline

Hi Noah,

Thanks for the response. I'm not having much joy Googling REDline. This is the first time I've used the Terminal and can't work out how to load the R3D to see it's metadata. Any clues?

Thanks,
Alex

First you need to install REDline. It comes with REDcine and REDAlert. Then invoke it from the terminal- it will then show its options.

Hi Noah,

To clarify, I can open REDLine in Terminal - a huge list of commands then appears, but I can't see how to actually 'import' a particular clip or RDM folder. Does that make any sense? How does one do this?

Many thanks,
Alex Elkins

You don't import anything you just use the option listed there to show metadata for a clip, enter the clips exact location on the drive as an argument to REDLine and it will do the trick.

Try this:

redline -i /Complete/Path/To/Clip/A014_C018_0310JG_001.R3D --printMeta 1

BUT -at least up to Build 17- the "FPS" info referred only to the Time Base of your project. There was no way to get the frame rate you shot the clip with. Even the shutter degree was wrong, as it was based on the Time Base and not the Frame Rate.

I have not checked if this bug has been fixed in later builds.

Thanks Petter,

I'll test this when I'm back in the office. Much appreciated. I'll report back to let you know if the bug you mentioned has been fixed.

Many thanks,
