I'm going to edit a short shot on Red in the next few weeks and I want to edit using transcoded ProRes material (as I've heard of problems with performance using the proxy QT files).
The only "free" option of being able to conform back to the original R3D files (for grading) is going through the Log & Transfer process as specified in the Red white paper, right?
The only other option I found is Crimson, which is a paid-for app (and this is a non-paid project, otherwise I wouldn't think twice about buying that app, trust me).
I'm asking because I've also heard (from @mikeseymour) that L&T has some issues with Red 16:9 footage, and I'm kind of pissing my pants right now as I will not have time to test the workflow extensively before the actual shoot and I'd really like it all to work (don't we all?)
So... Is there anything I can do to minimize any PITA?
Thanks for your help,
