RED, FCP, Color & After Effects workflow?
on Nov 24, 2011 at 12:28:07 pm

Hi, I have recently finished editing a short student film that was shot on RED. I transcoded the footage to Pro Res 4444 with the original plan to grade the Pro Res footage. However, the director changed his mind and decided he wants to grade the original 4K footage in Apple Color.

I'm just wondering what the procedure is in terms of workflow from getting the footage from FCP to Color and then back. I'm also adding some minor VFX in After Effects and I'm not sure at what stage I should do this. Can someone help me cut through this workflow?

How did you originally transcode the footage? Log and transfer?

I used Red-Cine X to transcode the footage into Pro Res 4444

Knock your edit down to cuts only video and one track.

Export an XML to RCX to reattach the r3ds and export an XML from RCX.

Import that to FCP, reconstruct the edit and send to Color. Or import the XML to color, grade, send back to FCP after color render, and reconstruct.
