Need some advise how to handle RED EPIC video
on Nov 17, 2011 at 6:11:29 pm

Hello,

I need some advise about the RED EPIC. I'm going to help out on a music video this weekend and we're shooting with the EPIC. Which is a new area for me.

I've been told You can't run a playback in the camera to see recorded video. So I was asked to try to find a way to play the video on a computer. And I heared that the I could make the video to quicktime with
RED CINE-X.

I don't know much about RED CINE -X or the EPIC camera. So I wonder if anyone could give me some guide lines here. We don't go RED ROCKET for what I know.

Thank You fellow creativecow-users!

Hi Viking

Your best option at the moment is to record using an AJA Ki Pro Mini (as well as recording on the camera of course!). No need to use REDCine X for playback in the sense that you're thinking of (i.e. immediate playback of a take after shooting it).

REDCine X is more of a processing application. Think of it as a digital telecine. You use it to convert the files the Epic shoots into a format so that you can edit with more easily (such as ProRes for Final Cut Pro or DNxHD for Avid). However, with the AJA Ki Pro Mini you can bypass this step entirely as it will now record matching timecode and reel data from the camera. In this case REDCine X serves the same purpose, but you lose some speed and gain a lot of control.

You may also consider buying or renting this for your shoot.
