I'm just curious to see how others are integrating the RED PLAYER, bundled with the most recent versions of REDCINE-X, into their workflow. It is a new tool and there's been no discussion about it (or did I miss it?). Is anyone doing anything brilliant or innovative or clever with this little app? Will there be an iPad version? Is there a future plan for it?
I just loaded it into a 13'' macbook and am discovering it is kind of handy. Without a Rocket, I can play back most 1/8 clips smoothly for checking playback and data integrity. It won't play back much higher res than that cleanly - but not bad for fieldwork. At full debayer, I can check focus, sorta. Not critical focus, actually, on this little low res screen. But sorta. Not too shabby.
Where's my mobile plug n play Thunderbolt enabled Rocket in a portable box at a reasonable price point? (just throwing that in, for good measure....) -
