I think Red would be well served by a cheap and dumb RR card version. Something that would allow 1/2 res good playback and transcodes between 1/4 to 1/2 realtime for Epic footage. Something cheap enough and easy enough to use that smaller Post facilities would have no excuse not to buy. If it was an external thunderbolt box I would buy one just to give to recalcitrant clients so they could easily digest Red RAW. While a super powerful card is an essential tool for many I believe many others would be happy with a solution that would allow decent monitoring and reasonable transcode speeds. If this could be achieved for under $1,000 many more projects could go down the R3D path.
