I got this data wrangling gig where I am expected to download red dragon footage and organize them for the editor.(and maybe sync audio too) They are shooting in 6k?
If I have a decent budget, what gear should I get for this job? is a mac book sufficient or will I need a mac pro tower?
Will I have to get red rocket, if I need to playback and monitor the footage?
It is a bog project with over 30 days of filming, my Director wanted me to find out the best hard drive to buy? Can you suggest something? ( I am thinking we will need 3 of those to back up everything) also what drives work best as shuttle drives to move stuff from dit station to the editor.
If you can think of something else that I need to get please do answer.
Dragon footage eats a lot of storage. A 30 day shoot will require quite a bit of storage. To get an idea of how much storage you will need RED has an easy to use calculator on their website that will tell you your typical maximum recording time on a single card when you put in the resolution, frame rate, and compression.
