RED with no QT wrapper files
on Jan 11, 2012 at 11:30:51 pm

I received a drive that had two folders of RED footage. One for A-camera and one for B-camera. I used RED Cine-X to transcode the footage to ProRes422 to edit in FCP. A-camera was fine. I tried to load the B-camera into the Bin and apply settings for export, but it says that it "failed to open file" and the thumbnail is black with a red "X" on it. I looked in the folder and the B-camera footage doesn't have any of the usual 4 QT files inside each clip folder for some reason. Only the raw RED files.

How can I get those files transcoded without it? Is it possible?

Why would they be missing?

Thanks in advance,
Eddie

If you have the Adobe suite on your FCP machine you can use Adobe Media Encoder to transcode. It's not as elegant as RED Cine-X, but will do the job.

Thanks, David. I just tried it and Adobe ME says that "The source file appears to be corrupted. Please check that it is a valid file."

Any other ideas??

Thanks,
Eddie

Just did. Wanted to make sure there was no other way first or that I was missing something on my end.

RED Rushes might work. Obviously the complete file structure wasn't transferred from the B camera.

The other possibility is that you can load the R3D files into Color or da Vinci and render out quicktimes in the right codec and frame size but I don't know if you will lose timecode data doing this. If you are doing a workflow that relinks then that is disaster.

Searching and askin on the RED forums might also solve this for you.
