    REDCODE RAW doesn't effect higlight handling - it's as good as it is uncompressed.

    Well considering that Red has twice the dynamic range of a digital slr and add to that the ability to manipulate the curves. I think that clipping is not a huge problem that is insurmountable for most scenes in overcast Ireland Ruairi!

    Just err on the side of caution when lighting.

    Catch 22 was shot in 1969/70 so I hope it was shot on film!

    High contrast film will fall off fast, low contrast will fall off slowly.
    If you are thinking of shooting a scene like this, my advice would be to put the light on a dimmer, and adjust the light to your needs, with 11 1/3rd stops you should have no problem finding the sweet spot.
    As far as a "softclip" function in RedCine, are you asking that the sensitivity of highlight clipping be increased?
    Here's a couple of grabs from the film

    and a couple more





    You can clearly see it doesn't oversaturate in the overexposed areas when the light is turned on.

    This is a good thing.

    I may be wrong but I still think that type of lighting scheme should be quite possible with RED. We need an official confirmation on this though, maybe on the next few tests?
