Never worked with RED footage before
on Sep 16, 2014 at 7:31:07 pm

Hey everyone, I'm working on a short film pro-bono for some friends. They're shooting on RED and I've never worked with RED footage before, so I know nothing about the workflow process. I've been searching the internet for help, but nothing seems to match my criteria.

I'm working with footage from a RED epic 5K WS, no more than 3TB.

The main computer I have access to is:
2011 15" MacbookPro with 8GB memory and AMD Radeon HD 6490M GPU. FCP7, FCPX, and Premiere CS5.5 installed on it.

But I also have access to:
2013 27" iMac with 8GB memory and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4096MB GPU. FCP7 and Premier CS5.5 installed on it.

I'm most comfortable working in FCP7, but I'll work in whatever NLE I have to.

Can anyone help me, or direct me to any good tutorials? The ones I come across are all a little too old.

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate it. Any other questions, please let me know.

[Mike Mitchell] "I'm most comfortable working in FCP7,"

FCP7 does not support pixel with beyond 4000px

With either of those computers plan on waiting a lot while things process / render.
