Im posting a red trim in a second. When it uploads ill edit this post.
I was in 10:1 and I just assumed that shooting the image in HDRx would be ok... Weird.
Definately looks like a compression issue, nothing to do with HDRx in my opinion. When I shoot very complex (high detail) scenes like this, I try to use lower compression because higher compression like 10:1 has a hard time keepong all the detail. I remember a time (around buid 16 on the Red One) where such a tree made the camera crash...
Maybe exposing for the highlights and not using HDRx but a lower compression like 5:1 instead would have given you a better result... Would be worth trying.
Just FYI, the 2.0.2 (Alpha) seems to be the most stable firmare as far as image quality goes. We call this artifacts "snowstorm", and we've decided not to upgrade the firmware until this is solved.
We've come to that conclusion after our tests and some posts on the forum. We haven't experienced this particular issue on the 2.0.2, but on the 2.0.5 and 2.0.8. We found a post about the same issue on 3.0.0 while we were testing the build so we decided not to upgrade.
The 2.0.2 is pretty stable except for one time when we had a checker board type of lines over the entire frame, which we issued a support ticket about. We were suggested to upgrade to a later build, but we didn't want to risk our customers with the snowstorm artifact since it was more frequent issue.
Good thing you guys are heavily investigating on the issue. I really want to be equiped with the RC3/RG3 as soon as this issue is solved.
I've been seeing the same thing on footage I shot over the weekend, they've asked folks to email in who are experiencing it, to rob at red dot com.
