View Full Version : how does RGB work?

This RAW vs RGB thing is new to me. When we shoot RGB on RED do we choose certain look for our footage that includes white balance parameters/ edge enhancement/ sharpening/ knee/ etc? And it is recorded to the disc more like it would be to standard tape? How quickly swappable are the parameters, if so. For example, moving into daylight -- must swap color temp. Or am I just really confused.

Even when shooting RAW you'd want to set some of those options, to get a decent monitoring picture and embed some nice metadata with the RAW file.
Normally RGB recording is a baked in picture, but Greame mentioned that RGB recording on the RED could be stripped down to demosaic only.
That means it's almost still a RAW file, with only the demosaic pass done in the camera to convert to 3 color channels. Whitebalance, sharpness, tonecurve etc. can still be tweaked like the raw file.
But at this time when everything is under development this could still change.

Sharpness???:eek: I'm allergic!
I'm curious to see how the RGB data rate compares to REDCODE RAW...
