We're a mainly corporate video house that shoots most everything on our Epic. Problem is, we are winding up with HUGE projects. This is no problem on our XSAN while the project is live, but when it comes to archiving these huge projects, it is becoming a big problem. What I'd like to do is some sort of media managing - is this possible?
Like this sort of thing...
Shoot in 5k
Basic Color in RCXPro
Prores nearly everything
Edit in FCP
Go back to RCXPro for a few shots I want to recolor, color rest in FCP or color
Archive ONLY the R3D that I'm using in the edit and handles, and be able to throw away the rest.
I know you may say that is crazy, but at what clients are paying us for the experience of shooting on RED we cannot afford to keep each project (which is about 1TB now) in archives. If I could just keep the R3D's of the shot parts that I used, then I could always make stills of them, recolor, etc. but I just can't bring myself to throw out ALL the R3D's!
Does RCXPro offer this? We've tried using the import xml but gotten pretty shoddy results. Didn't clipfinder used to do this?
