Mercury Engine and RED
With all the new news about the Scarlet camera series from RED, I’ve gotten a couple of emails about how the new Adobe Mercury Engine will work with RED footage.
If you go to this video on Dave Helmly’s wonderful AdobeTV show:
and scrub to about the 9:20 mark, you’ll see some examples of how the Mercury Engine plays back RED footage. Dave has 4 RED R3D files (full 4k files!) playing back in the Multicam monitor in real-time. He also shows real-time chroma keying of RED files. Incredible.
