let red debayer and scale in realtime into a standard format without dropping frames and I think we will have far less problems with things like going out to a standards based display like a 720p plasma etc for preview, having premiere do this work on top of all the other things its already doing in realtime seems like a bad idea for a smooth workflow
Thanks for the feedback guys.
Mike: understood. We aren't at that level yet. As indicated we're working on much deeper integration. This is just the first step!
first steps are fantastic, I would be very very careful how deep you go, I would hate to loose stability and user interface speed that we have now in premiere!
a "render codec" would be very nice though!
I think that you should be able to import a master folder that contains all the red folders and have it import 1 clip per R3D, so that if you have 12 R3D files for 1 clip, then it will have 12 files for that one clip, that would give us the ability to get rid of several GB chunks that we don't want. It also lets us use the first part of a corrupted clip if they recorded long enough. Later you can work on having it stitch the clips together on a bulk import.
I think that even if you get the stitching to work, that you should make it so that you can import just 1 part of an R3D file if there are multiple parts and the last file is corrupt.
I'm also very much for a widget/gadget that lets you change what proxy resolutions you are using, the suggestion to use Adobe Air is a great one, then it's cross platform immediately.
The whole idea of the Premiere workflow is that it is resolution independent...
But I doubt render times are going to be any better there than with existing software. At some point the debayer must be done at a resolution that jibes with the desired quality of the finished product.
As to render times and scaling quality? Seems to me that's more up to Adobe than anyone else. Their software is scaling & rendering, so I'm not sure how you see this as a Red development responsibility.
Red needs to provide realtime output in standards formats like 720 and 1080 and 2k etc... all I am saying...
Theoretically, one should be able to set globals in PP to, say, 1/4 and Globals in AE to full and work that way all day, so long as you remember to reset on restarts. So you have edit speed in PP and resolution in AE.
Or would that make the apps run flaky?
You could even make an Automator script to open the apps and reset globals and use that as an alias to the apps themselves..
Also, is it possible to tell the camera not to make proxies? When your workflow is RAW end to end, the proxies aren't needed and so batch importing folders would be one step simpler.
