Identify Resolution Question
on May 19, 2011 at 2:07:22 pm

I have a total newbie question.
I edited a project where I was supplied with Apple ProRes 422 files. I was told that the original elements were shot on the Red, but I don't have access to those files.
We are trying to organize finishing this project but no one over at the place that has the physical files seems to know how the R3D files were shot - ie, what resolution.
I don't know enough to talk them through this and they say they can't open them on their system. Is there an easy way for them to look at the original files and tell me what resolution they are?

Any computer that has the Red codec installed should be able to open the R3D files and check what the resolution and frame rate of the shoot was. You should ask for a copy of some or all of the media on a portable hard drive to take back to your system and check. I wouldn't take the original drive as it could create a liability problem if something goes wrong.

Thanks to both of you for your help.
For liability reasons, a copy of the material is being sent directly to the facility where we are color-grading and conforming. That's one of the reasons why I've never seen the original material.

Cheers.
