quick question... after reading this ... I have to export about an hours worth of footage that is red 4k and export it on a dvd... what is the easiest way to do that??? i use final cut and have little knowledge of this red technology... It's already all on an external hd I just need to bring in all the files into final cut, but wondering what the best settings are and how to minimize the file size so that it could all fit in a dvd...

I hope the following helps a little bit -

First, if you could be more specific - are you trying to produce a DVD that you can playback from or a data DVD?

What RED software are you using? You need something to translate the .r3ds into Quicktimes... (search for workflow) then it's a matter of making your disc.

Try putting some time and effort into searching and reading the threads here. Your answers can be found rather simply...
