Just got off the phone with BorisFX/Media 100. They have given us a bit of a gift in the form of RED4, which is now available for download at: http://www.borisfx.com/esd/main.php It is fully approved for use in the 844/x. Of course, it isn't free but the upgrade price is reasonable ($300US) and the purchase price isn't to bad either. I think it's $1500US-ish. Here's the latest press release from NAB: http://borisfx.com/company/press_releases/red4.php
Hopefully this package will teach the old dog new tricks and offer new creative flexibility without having to go out to AE. Besides the other features, I am hoping that this will be the death of the accursed Inscriber. My personal thanks to Boris and his team for making RED4 compatible with the 844/x. Based on potential sales, I'm sure that they won't see much money out of this but they did it anyway. I'm viewing this as Boris making a nice gesture to this community after years of lies and abuse by others. Thanks, Boris!!!
I'm downloading now and I'll be using it in the next few weeks. I'll try to report back as i can. Be well...
