Reconforming prores 4444 to original R3D files?
on Sep 25, 2010 at 5:48:08 pm

I am in the early stages of a RED project using final cut 7 for the edit. I transcoded the R3D files to prores 4444 thinking that would save time not having to reconform… Just found out a producer wants to reconform to the R3D files for color correction.

First Question: In the interest of time, is it possible to reconform Prores 4444? Or do I need to re-ingest the RED media and transcode to a different prores codec?

Next potential problem…
I also renamed the reel names for RED code using the Reel field of the Log and Transfer.

Second Question: Is this going to jeopardize my ability to reconform the current transcoded files?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Clipfinder would be the thing to buy for that conform- worth every penny. Not sure if the REEL names will cause an issue- but in general, never do this. :)
