I'm about to go into production for a series of spots. My goal is to use the Red One (instead of shooting traditional 35mm film). Here is my problem...and I hope that someone can help me find the solution.
We have an Avid Media Composer (running on PC) with an Adrenaline box with the DNXcel board in it. We want to shoot on the RED, bring it into the AVID and do the full HD online there (like we do with all of our other HD projects).
Has anyone figured out an online HD Avid workflow?
I've tried converting the Red files using RedRushes and either get low res quality or I get files that are not compatible with PC (the ApplePro res is great, but we're not using FCP OR editing on the Mac). When I try to convert to DNxHD from RedCine I get noise. The other options prove to be too low quality (or WAY to large to deal with).
Am I missing something really obvious? Has anyone found a PC Avid Media Composer solution? Anyone? I really want to use the Red for this project but if there is no way we can reasonably online it, I can't.
Thanks for all your help.
