  1. #1 conversion of an R3D file into .avi format 
    Hello,

    I just converted an R3D file into .mov format.
    Is there also a way to convert it into .avi format?

    I converted the R3D file using REDCINE-X PRO 50. Maybe the wording should be 'save as' instead of converted.

    It is converted, because the R3D file gets de-compressed and de-bayered as part of the process. If you're looking for a lossless open-source format, it's hard to beat 12-bit DPX.

    To convert to AVI you need a PC. Macs don't support AVI.

    However, AVI is a very old standard.

    I see from your earlier posts that you're going to use Matlabs to analyse the footage. Is Avi the only standard it supports? AVI is only a wrapper, so you might also need to see which compression system Matlab will accept. For safety, although it will generate very large files, I would use uncompressed, which can also be called 'animation'.

    According to Mathworks documentation the videoreader supports both quicktime .mov and h.264 .mp4
