Adjusting Red black & white footage to coulor in FCP

I posted a similar post last week. But the project is now being edited in FCP7

I’m working on a project that was shot on Red, however due to an error some the footage was filmed in black & white, therefore the imported prores files are black & white. However, when I watch the Red files (not in FCP) they are colour. I’m told that the colour info. is held in the metadata.

So my question is, how to I import the prores files so that they are colour? And can I do this using Final Cut?

A friend suggested that I use Redcinex (without going into any details). But I haven't got a clue how to use it! I opened the files in redcinex, turned the saturation up to 1, but how do I transcode the 'edited' files out to prores lt? And can I 'batch export' them?

However, I'd rather use FCP to transcode, if possible, because 3/4s of the footage is being transcoded this way, and I presume it will make it easier when I come to the end of the edit and start the actual colour grade in Color?

Thanks!

Hi

You can either use RedCine or the FCP log and transfer tool.

In order to use the log and transfer tool you must download the Red plug-in from the Red support site.

https://www.red.com/support/all/downloads

Here are a couple of fairly simple tutorials for both.













best wishes
