    Build 16 is a monumental change to everything RED as far as the image quality, DSP and methodology is concerned. You may be surprised at how different it is from previous builds in how it looks and works. You will have to alter your thinking just a bit. What you see on the monitor and how you make exposure decisions will change. All for the better, but it will be a change.

    We all wish we had done this from the beginning, but you have to walk before you run.

    We just don't want anyone to be shocked when you fire it up.

    Alpha build is just around the corner. Depending on the feedback we get from those chosen few, the Beta build should not be long after.

    Exciting times.

    Now, back to solving production problems... ugh.

    Jim,
    Thank you for the info. You know we will put the camera to it's full test.

    I will be giving everyone on the board our feedback.

    It feels to me like you just bypassed that whole walking phase?

    Some times you have to run before you can walk... and then you have to solve the icing problem while plummeting from 70,000 feet.

    And I'm loving every minute of it- can't wait for 16.

    Like, we're going to have to read tea leaves?

    I'm kinda racking my brain as to how different it could possibly be. Perhaps ISO could go away entirely and it would be all about the histograms and false color.

    Can't be that different.

    Jim,

    Some questions for you.

    1. Build 16 sounds exciting, but will there be any conflicts with existing footage? You've mentioned that REDCINE, RED Alert have all had to go through re-writes, and I'm wondering if we will see any issues with say mixing proxy files from footage shot on build 15 with proxies from build 16?

    2. Now that we have had time to play with RED footage as it stands now, will you be releasing a comprehensive guide along with the build 16 rollout that goes into detail what has changed, best practices for using the new build, etc. I only ask because when I see monumental change mentioned, that makes me want to know exactly what has changed so I can re-program my brain.

    3. This may be a Graeme question, but what exactly have you discovered that made you go back to the drawing board and rework a lot of this? I'm all for improvements to image quality but curiosity is getting the best of me.

    Thanks Jim, and look forward to seeing what you and the team have come up with.
    Steve Sherrick
