New to Red and in sorting out my workflow it's raised another question re Log & Transfer.
I've downloaded Redcine-x Pro to transcode the footage to ProRes (proxy) plus I installed the Red FCP plug-in. So far so good.
My first step was to test two transcoding paths:
1. Via Redcine xPro
2. Via FCP Log & Transfer
In my tests, the FCP Log & Transfer is about 95% faster than Redcine xPro. In other words the Redcine x Pro is so slow that it's almost unworkable. I assume this is the limits of using a laptop without a dedicated card. Correct??
My 2nd issue is with the FCP log and transfer. I'm trying to transcode to a ProRes Proxy of 1920 x 1080 but I can't find anywhere in the Log & Transfer Preferences to specify this. It automatically transcodes the clips to 2240 x 960. So, despite it being fast, I can't get the size I want.
Is it possible to re-size/change output size in Log & Transfer
Any thoughts on this?
