Need advice with DIT rig for low budget doc. Pretty new to red workflow

Hi,

Low budget Feature doc shot on the red on mx:

The project will have me backing up r3ds, some transcoding for dailies, and applying a few looks already established by the dp. No real grading or anything to crazy. This is for a documentary so of course money is tight and people (such as myself) are taking on roles that aren't necessarily qualified for.

There is going to be a ton of media generated...my plan is to (hopefully) get production to get thunderbolt drives or usb 3 drive, use r3d data manager to transfer to it and verify it then redcinex for any transcoding that is taking place for dailies and playback very debayered. I currently have a macbook pro 2.8ghz i7 w/ 16gb of ram. Shooting 4k at redcode 28 or 36 and possibly a 2 hour interview a day. I don't know what transcode times will be like for 2 hours of media, probly not very good? Without a rocket, how do people usually playback?

I am doing my homework elsewhere too but was hoping for a little help from the cow.

thanks
dan

Transcoding will also depend on what codec you are transcoding to. You may want to look at Cineform for that. The MacBook Pro or any laptop with a 700 series GPU should be ok at 1/4 resolution. You may want to have Premiere installed incase you need better playback with the GPU acceleration although RedCine is lean and good by itself for most.
