Hello and thank in advance for any help.
First time with Red footage, so here goes.
I've followed the PDF instructions offered by Avid
regarding Red Rushes. So far mostly good, but it's
a very simplified description.
1. Should the "Output" folder have a red specific name (something
relative to the red folder the clips came from?)
or should I simply name that something that makes
sense for my end of the project? i.e. just one folder
that holds the clips/ALE for the whole project.
2. After I do the transcodes and export an ALE, I'm a bit confused
as to how to import them all. On a test clip and ALE I generated
from it, I simply imported it and and got 2 clips-one offline with
what seems like all the metadata (the ALE I
presume) and one online (the quicktime). I would guess I'm
doing something wrong, as I'd like to have a single clip with
the associated Metadata.
3. Since my deliverables will be for the internet, I'd like to keep my transcodes as efficient as possible. I tried one at "Half Res-High"
and one at "Half-Res-Standard" and I think the standard actually
looks sharper strangely. Any settings advice for internet deliverables
that will be graded and exported from a DNxHD project would be appreciated.
Thanks very much.
