creating full quality stills from 4.5k r3d file for designer to use??
on Dec 9, 2011 at 6:39:15 pm

Hello,

I am doing some grading in Resolve of 4.5k r3d files for a short film - the director would like me to export some high quality still images for a photoshop designer to use for post, gfx, etc related to the film.

I am curious to know what application I should be using and exactly how to do this for them (redcine-x, resolve, etc)? I would imagine giving him the highest quality & resolution to work with in Photoshop/Illustrator makes the most sense I just want to be sure to do this correctly.

In resolve just for you to know I changed the color science & gamma to 2 from what it was set at which was just normal redcode - it looked better as a starting point for grading for sure.


any help would be greatly appreciated.
cheers
andrew

RCX or RCX Pro does this as one button click. You can set the type of still in the prefs, and even include a preset or use the current preset, and of course define an output path.

Hello

Would you care to elaborate on how to do this just - maybe just the basics to get the ball rolling as I am sure the rest will be rather self-explanatory?

thanks
andrew

Open the R3Ds in RCX or RCX Pro.

Open the preferences.

Choose what you want under "Snapshot".

Find the frame you want and click the camera button. It's fall down easy.

Can you export a targa or tiff sequence? 8-bit RGB, or 16-bit?

Yes, you can make image sequences in the export presets.
