This supports RED via QT - so it is only really exciting when we get _F enabled, if that is, in fact, what I hope - full res, full quality debayer.

Telestream Epsiode products are first rate. Good stuff.

I thought _F works now per Red mythbusters?

I upgraded to Episode Pro 5.0, but so far don't see the support for RED and DPX formats. This feature may only be available in Episode Engine Pro, which I don't have. I'd still be interested in hearing how anyone eventually uses it in their workflow.

Ahhhhh .. the guys at Plaster usually use the _H - which is "1/2" of 4K = 2K

You CAN trick Quicktime into playing the _F if you uncheck the "Use high-qulity video setting when available" in the QT Prefs - this will display your QT in full res BUT NOT FULL QUALITY - it's extracting from the 2K "layer" -

So, no, _F doesn't work (the way I want it too - and the way I assume RED wants it too - full res - full quality) -
