Red/Color Workflow Question.
on May 6, 2008 at 9:58:10 pm

Cow Masters,

We are using FCP Color and finishing with Red 2K files. We can take an EDL from the 1K proxy offline edit, and pull a 4K cut list using Crimson. We then take that timeline in RedCine and render that cut list into 2K .mov files that Color can read. Only it is one large .mov file and no edit/cut points remain. It is too much work to manually make cut points in a feature length program. How can we render the 4K files to 2K .mov files for Color and maintain each cut point?


Thanks, Film Joe

I haven't done it before, but the theory is that if you export an edl from FCP, then you could use that as a cut list within Color. That would then put the edits in for you.

Someday Color will have this all figured out so you can grade from the R3D files. That will simplify things tremendously.

WHY?
you are not having REDCine output the content using EVENTS so that every single clip is back in its own folder, this has to be done when working with Frame Seqs so why not use it for the Video clips also.

You're missing a step in the roundtripping sounds like... Take a quick look at this: http://www.crimsonworkflow.com/videos/CrimsonDemo-H.264.mov I think it will take care of your problem. You import the files then you import the XML created in FCP to trim them up and keep them in the order that the sequence you sent had.

There's a more complete explanation of the workflow for Crimson here: http://www.redhax.net/wiki/Crimson_Workflow

Dear Joe,

I think you should probably try to export xml data into color.
That would maintain your edit point.

Cheers
