I am still struggling to find the optimal work flow for dealing with RED Epic Footage. I have attached a picture that is 5120 x 2700 pixels. This is the size of the RED Epic footage. The goal is to pan and scan / zoom into the footage for a 1920 x 1080p DaVinci Project. What I am still unclear about is what settings I need to use to be able to move the image around the canvas and at the same time make sure I am not scaling passed 100% of the native resolution. Meaning I dont want to scale past 5120 x 2700. I cant seem to find that information.
If you look at the three screen shots I have attached
1) EPIC_Resolve - Notice how much information is outside the 1920 x 1080 frame. I want to be able to "see" this and use it during grading. From what I can tell there doesn't seem to be a way to zoom out the viewer and see this extra material. It makes it difficult to understand where I am.
2) Config - On the config page for the project, what setting should I be using for RED EPIC 5K footage?
3) Format Input - By default the zoom slider is at 1.0. I am not really certain what is happening to the footage as I increase or decrease this slider from a mathematical standpoint. Because I cant zoom out of the viewer I have no idea where on the image I am.
Can you tell me a better way to go about this?
