Red camera workflows
All right, lets get the immediate thing out of the way. I’ve been dark for a while on the blogosphere. Guilty as charged. There’s a certain blogging product that has been giving me fits and sadly it’s an Adobe product. Ah well, we’re not perfect, though we try real hard. Now…on to more important things
The RED camera support for Adobe is out the door and while it’s still a beta, a number of our beta testers are getting some work done on it and that’s the most important thing.
I can profess to be a RED camera expert – though I’d love to have a camera! However, the way it works with Adobe software is pretty much the same thing that we’re doing with DVCProHD, XDCAM, AVCHD and any other native format that comes our way: we handle it natively.
So, with that in mind, you should go get the plug in here
When you’ve downloaded it, you should check out the lengthy video from my Adobe co-worker Dave Helmly: Red Workflow
Here’s the basic advantages of an Adobe workflow:
- Mac and PC – You still have a huge audience on PC that is looking for compelling ways to edit RED footage
- Native – Final Cut still takes you to a Log and Transfer, so I’m wondering why that is…
- works on laptops and desktops
Is there still work to do? Oh yeah, you betcha. But it’s a good start.
As for blogging – I’ll probably be a little dark through the rest of the year, but I will be working on getting a bunch of stuff built up. My apologies for not staying active, despite the software glitches. Adobe’s got me on some exciting new stuff and it’s going to take a lot of my time – but I’m committed to trying to keep publishing information, blogs and tutorials whenever and however I can.
Thanks for your patience and understanding,
