R3D files in After Effect - Color Space Question

Hi all,
I am doing a color correction for one shot in After Effects and because it is pretty dark I wanted to use the raw R3D file to get as much detail as possible. Here are the specs -

RED Scarlet
4K 4096x2160
LOG C
23.976

I'm working in After Effects CC 2014 (most recent update) on a Mac.

When I bring the file into AE it's VERY dark so I'm assuming there's an issue with the color management. When I went into the Project settings for color management I did not see the correct option for LOG C. When I checked out many of the options they still were way too dark.

Am I wrong in using the Raw file? Should I convert it to ProRes? If so, how should I do this?

Thanks a lot for any help and please let me know if you need more info!
-Tim

Alexa doesn't shoot R3D files because that format is only shot by Red cameras. If it is in ArriRAW format you can change the raw settings. Right click -> interpret footage -> more options.

I suggest you download REDCINE software first and do first light on the R3Ds.
