    Can someone who owns ARRI/RED rosette piece give me an outer diameter from it? Does the teeth have an angle going to the center? Also there's 60 theet in it right? I'm doing some DIY parts and this information would greatly help, thanks :)

    Arri and RED rosettes do not fit eachother, teeth are different. But I'm working on a solution.

    Why do companies do this? RED follows the Arri standard for baseplates. Vlock for batts... PL for mounts ;)

    Why not just make it Arri standard? What's the incentive to come up with a different pattern?

    Beats me. But for what it's worth I feel the RED rosettes are a better design. It's not just a flat disc that bolts on. There a big beefy fat square block on the underside that locks into the surface of other RED gear. Honestly. the screws just seem like insurance on those things. But yeah I agree...this stuff should just work with everything else out there.

    Since you seem to have both rosettes, could you give me the outer diameter from them?
