Red Epic - FCP 7 Workflow Advice Needed

Hi everyone

I am looking to edit a short music video and have looked at the avid route and for this project i am thinking FCP 7 might be the best option for this project.

The final delivery would be HD QT so I am wanting to just work in HD

The workflow i have come up with is as follows

Import Red footage to REDCINE X PRO build 35.1 - export all clips as Apple Pro Res - Import into FCP 7 - edit away, Grade in either Apple Color or Adobe Suite, Export as HD QT

This seems pretty straightforward, is there anything I am missing?

Can i batch export all the clips in a bin from REDCINE X PRO?

Also, if we decided to conform to 2K and grade in a suit somewhere, what info would i need to log in order for the EDLS to work properly? I'm used to avid, and FCP bins are a bit different

Thanks everyone

Do you have Adobe CC? If so why not just edit in Pr with the r3ds and skip transcoding.

FCP7 and Color is a bit creaky but you can also do a relink to the r3ds from the FCP export. Bit laborious.

Main thing is maintaining file names and timecode/reels to locate back to the r3ds for any future 2k versioning. Make xmls as well as EDLs regardless. FCP7 can do it but there are better options. You could even edit in Resolve.

I was wondering why a 5 year old application, discontinued 4 years ago...would be the best choice for this.

Personally I'd do it in Avid and go to Resolve for final grading. But that's me. Premiere Pro CC can do that too....and no transcoding. BUT ONLY if your machine has FAST FAST processors, GOBS of RAM, a GPU card to enable CUDA...and a fast RAID. Avid does this without those resources making the footage more manageable to edit.
