I just got footage to edit that was shot on one of RED Cameras. I was trying to log and transfer footage to FCP but I get message that I do not have red codec. I have already installed Final Cut Studio 2 Installer from red.com page but still same message. I have not been working with red footage for a long time and I remember that I was just using RedRushes to make quicktime wrappers, but since I haven't got this program and apparently now workflow looks different I am bit confused. Could someone tell me what should I do? I have also noticed that footage has been shot in 4k. I have been reading somewhere that it might be problematic.
I would really appreciate prompt help as this is very short project and I need to give it back tomorrow, but now I am simply stuck.
Well I managed to sort out this problem. Despite i have FCP6 and should install Final Cut Studio 2 Installer, Final Cut Studio 3 Installer has newer version of Red Codec and after installing it I could actually start edit. Something simple but can consume a lot of time and stress.
