RED Viewing MX SENSOR
on Aug 31, 2010 at 12:34:42 am

What is the best viewing know when shooting red? With the M Sensor I always view in REC709 and double check my RAW view. Now that REC is gone is RedColor the best to view in (also the metadata stuff).

AND with redrushes I'd have my gamma rec709 and my color red space. What is the best now?

Redcolor - for color?
and
Redgama - for gamma?

1- depends what you shot with. 2- depends where you're going with the footage. For example REC709 is for broadcast.

REDColor / REDGamma are the new defaults for a reason. They show the image in a very reasonable way that is compatible with a REC709. You should be using REDCine-X with M-X footage as REDAlert! and REDRushes have been deprecated and do not support the M-X sensor.

Thank you clears a lot up.

Just to clear one thing up. Used to be viewing options on a monitor was Rec709, Redspace, and RAW. I would use Rec then double check the RAW as the director or client would think it looked to flat. Now the one to monitor in is RedColor for a image that please the director or client and gives a good example of what information your capturing.

Thank you

Yes, the REDColor setting works just like you describe. There's still RAW there for a quick check, or you can flick on the RAW false colour exposure meter (purple and red) that shows clipping in the raw no matter what the ISO.

Thank you! Sorry one last question I am shooting with the new mx soon I do have a test day so most of these questions will be answered. What should my flut settings be at -4 to 4?

Thanks

FLUT setting is fine control over ISO. I'd use it as such and if necessary, and more likely in post than in camera. It's in camera for completeness, but makes most sense to use ISO in camera.
