it looks like I'll start working on a feature film shot on RED. I want to use FCP, cut in some HD flavour, ProRes or DVCProHD. There will be a film deliverable, but we'll also need a promo reel soon. It's a scope show (~2.3:1), but I know nothing further about how the camera is set yet. They are recording the sound in camera, and not separately at all.
So I am thinking about splitting the sound from the QT ref movies to create a set of sound only originals. I could marry the sound back into merged clips in FCP to cut with them easily. I see the benefit in going through this hoop in the fact that I can swap out video Quicktimes easily without worrying about sound. I anticipate swapping video media in the process because no one is available to do a 'best-light' before I start cutting. So I anticipate that we'll do some broad-stroke color correction at least twice during post.
Could you please comment on this approach? Am I horribly off-track here, or is it too involved for the benefit it promises?
Thanks a lot for any input.
