I am trying to help a non savvy Red Editor with his workflow for FCP -> Smoke finnish
We shot on the new build 30 in 4.5K and shot the sound in dual system
The editor would like to sync the sound clips in FCP and rough edit and then send EDL to finnish in Smoke.
Is this the correct workflow, or should he do his syncing in smoke? Are we adding an extra step here with FCP? We are up to suggestions and would appreciate any insight
Ideally i would like to be able to grade with the meta data still attached as i will be overseeing the grade and working with the colorist or should we just go for pro res 4x4. (If this si the case should I do my one light in red cine x?)
Thank you for any insight
