Red in CS5 export to quicktime
on Nov 20, 2010 at 4:23:56 pm

I have a problem exporting 4k raw to quicktime. I have like 30 clips of 4 secs each in RedCam raw (around 2 gigs each). The rendered quicktimes work fine but they are all like 50 to 60 gigs each.

I am working in CS5 on this.

What would be a solution? like a compressor or a different file format (needs to support alpha+) ? I chroma keyed all the footage and color corrected it as well.

So I was hoping to get quictime files around 3 gigs each, chromakeyed and color corrected quicktimes in 4k with alpha+. I am getting all of this except they are 60 gigs each. Needless to mention that I am running out of hard drive space.

Hope some one knows a solution to this. I choose quicktime uncompressed so as to get the best quality.

I am stuck with a deadline.

Regards,

Forgot to mention that I am working on an i7.

Which codec are you using? Do you have Final Cut Pro on that machine too?

Hi, No, I do not have final cut pro.

I just go to render que and select quicktime and use None compression. Then I get Huge 4k size quicktime, some even over 60 gigs for 15 seconds.

I need the quicktimes to continue editing so I still need quality.

That's perfectly normal: 4K uncompressed is huge. Your only options are getting more space or a good codec. Cineform would help.
Or consider working in 2K. Most current movies are finished in 2k, and it's one quarter of the size.

Thanks, I am considering both. I am checking the cineform codec right now. I have to continue tonight and cant get another Hard Drive as its weekend.

Any other options like PNG or RPF? I need good quality but not 50 gigs for a 20 second clip. Dont mind if its close to 10 gigs.

Thanks for the help so far, at least I know I am not doing anything wrong and that this is normal.

PNG doesn't help much with natural images. I don't know RPF (other than a French party).

JPEG at 75% quality isn't too bad, but your best option IMHO is going 2K.
