I have approximately 50hours of Red 4k footage that I would like to transcode to pro res 422 proxy for the non native offline stage of my edit, we'll be going online for color-grading.
This is my first job with a red workflow.
I'm currently using Redcine x to transcode the media and this seems like an incredibly long process: am currently on a 1:5 ratio for transcoding.
As always time and space are of the essence, is there a quicker way to transcode? How can I optimize my settings to gain in speed?
Is transcoding red always such a long process?
Thanks for your time and help,
PS: I accidentally used an old copy of red rushes to transcode a few rushes and although the image was slightly yellow the time it took was tiny compared to redcine. Is this quite normal?
