Re: AE and RED footage codecs by Conrad Olson on Feb 23, 2012 at 6:57:20 pm
I would use image sequences over QuickTimes, they are more flexible, and I would pick my image sequence based on the colour space that I am working in and that other elements will be delivered in.
If you are comfortable with converting to and from log colour spaces then you can get the same colour range in a log DPX file and a linear TIF but the DPX files will be smaller.
As far as I know decoding R3D files is very processor intensive and slow and you are much better converting the files to something else. I don't know how much effect a Red Rocket card has or if it works in After Effects.
