i have got a huge amount of "R3d" Footage. It would take days to sight it carefully and lots of hours to create screengrabs manually. My Question: Is there an automated process (for example in redcine) to generate markers on a staple of clips, lets say every 100th frame for each clip, and export these into separate folders? I need to have draft information about the content of every clip, as a basis for the editing process.
Im not too experienced with the red workflow, so sorry for this rookie question. I couldnt find a fitting topic here.
Thanks in advance for any kind of help!
Where you have Redcine X installed you should also have a command line utility called REDline. There will be a help PDF for REDline, but suffice to say, you'll need to create a batch file with commands that look like:
--i being input file
--outdir being output directory
--o being output filename (take this switch out and it should match the filename of your R3D if I'm not mistaken)
--Format 1 is tiff
--res 2 is half debayer high quality
--start is frame number
--end is frame number (match start for 1 frame)
If your file is shorter than the start frame, it will be skipped.
You can then batch your TIFF images to jpeg or whatever else you need in a myriad of other programs. REDline is perfect for stuff like this.
