I have 8 TB footage of a film which has been shot with the RED EPIC at 23.98 fps 4K HD. The film also includes a lot of CGI work. I need expert advise on the most suitable workflow to maintain hi quality and efficiency.
Apple Mac pro with FCP and RED ROCKET installed
1. The CG work will be done in 2K. required footage will be exported (as tiff 16 bit 2K ungraded ) from RED CINE X. The final CG shots can be exported to DPX
2. Do i need to confirm the footage from 23.98 fps to 24 fps ? the guide audio tracks have been recorded in 24fps. Which means I will have sync issues if i drag that to a 24p timeline. What is the best option ?
Should I use FCP log and transfer to convert the footage and continue editing with the native frame rate or export from redcine X ( with the power of RED ROCKET ) by confirming the frame rate to 24 fps and apple pro res
3. What is the best DI workflow ? if I re link 4K native raw files for grading with Apple Color how would the 2K CG shots look like ? can I import the .DPX 2K sequence of CG shots and insert them in Apple Color or is there a better way ti insert the final CG shots ?
4. The film should be CROPPED to 2:35 aspect ratio.
Please advise me on how I should proceed with this project
