    Does the Red Raw editor show up in 10.3 somewhere?

    I used it all the time but after updating I can't find it.

    I did download and install the latest version.

    ****Actually I can't get any Helium footage to play in 10.3 at all ??????
    *****Can anyone lead me to the solution???

    did you download the new red raw worklfow thingy, if you did modify raw settings are under the 'I' on the right window where you would choose plug ins ect and all the way at the bottom

    Awaiting RED to update the Apple Workflow Installer to 12. Would love it if they added 1/4 and 1/8 in the REDCODE Preferences. Hopefully will help playback in FCPX.

    As soon as the image pauses you'll see the full resolution of your timeline anyway. Why not let FCPX dynamically handle on the fly resizing when playing back so that you get real time performance?

    I think the way it works is a great feature, and many times people don't even realize it's scaled down footage in 'better performance' mode, since the quality is great.
    This...pretty much right on.

    I answered this; as far as I'm aware the "better performance" mode was fixed (at 1/4res) not dynamic. So it may playback 4k footage no problem, but up it to 5k, 6k, or 8k, and that 1/4 might not be enough on the same machine. So no, it's not micro managing (it makes the difference between smooth playback and not smooth playback, independent of how powerful the host machine is).

    Other than that the playback quality vs. paused quality is somewhat irrelevant (it works as you'd expect.)

    Anyone with a Helium that could report back on performance on the new 15" when available would be truly appreciated!

    Just got my 2016 MacBook Pro (maxed specs, 1Tb SSD) and it does not play back the Weapon 8K RAW smoothly with FCPX 10.3 set to Better Quality.

    When set to Better Performance, FCPX 10.3 plays the 8K RED raw footage much better, but not perfectly without dropping frames. Playing all content from external Thunderbolt Raid (330Mb/sec). When I make proxies, it flies through the content as expected.

    the 330Mb/sec may be the issue. would you be willing to try putting the file on your SSD and letting us know how that works out?
