So I just shot 2 short films this past week with some friends on the Red Epic. The camera was surprisingly easy and produced beautiful images. I don't get why so many people say it is really hard to use- sure cameras have problems occasionally, but by in large, to me it felt like an ipod- with its touch screen and navigation. To me, Red is to new independents as 16mm was to the French.
Anyway, I need to know a few things:
I plan on renting a red rocket, since I know that speeds up render times and transcoding, but where can I rent one from I am Atlanta based and would only need one for about a day.
This is what my workflow is going to be like, I guess (please correct me if I am wrong):
RedCineX light grade -> Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)
Edit in FCP7-> Export an XML
Reconnect the XML to R3D files in Davinci Resolve to export a final 1080p and do final color correction?
How do I get to a 4k output for festivals? I can use premiere right?
Also, how do I go about using RedCineX what settings do I apply?
Thank you so much, reduser.
