Should I upres 1080 DSLR footage to 2048 for R3D
on Feb 2, 2012 at 11:35:43 am

I am cutting a short shot on Red in FCP7.
My timeline is ProRes Proxy, my red footage was transcoded to ProRes proxy at 2K (2048x1080.)

My issue is that one scene has been shot on a t2i (1920x1080.)
I know how to handle both cameras on their own but i'm wondering if you could give me some advice as to the best workflow.

I have compressor and Mpeg Streamclip.
Part of me wants to upres to 2K in Mpeg Streamclip. It feels dirty saying that but when I ponder it, it seems my other alternative would be to scale in FCP or AE.

So I am curious if any of you gents are experienced in the field, especially when dealing with matching a DSLR to 35mm or 4/5K R3D footage.

Thanks for your consideration,

Lacking information: What is your FINAL DESTINATION format?

TIP: Avoid as many transforms as possible. Specifically, as far as your final output is concerned, *all* of your camera original footage should go through no more than ONE transform.


Tip TWO: Do not scale anything for *final* in Final Cut Blow - the algorithms are terrible. After Effects is okay.


Determine your delivery format, and work backwards from there.
