First, please forgive me if my question crosses other posts, however post production is not my forte - I understand the principles however have never really got to grips with AMA, relinking files etc... when it comes to Avid.
My question is this. I have a broadcast job that was previously shot on Red One and the edit on it was a nightmare for production. I did not set up the original shoot, and going back 12 months if I had I would have simply suggested a 2nd avid to transcode the Red rushes and then let the editors do with the transcodes what they wish. I do not pretend to understand how linking back to the original files works, however I know enough to suggest this route as a simple solution.
I have noted the excitement regarding solutions like the PIX240, but this seems better suited to the Epic & Scarlet with 1080p output. I also understand that the output from the Red One is 720p and is obviously more geared towards it being a monitoring path rather than a method to record. So, I need to really understand if it is possible to record to a pix 240 so that the edit can immdiately use the footage, in effect an offline version of the files, and how the edit can link back at a later stage to the original footage? Can anyone give me a simplistic answer to my question please
