I am a programmer with a strong interest in video processing and post production. My brother have recently got a hold of a Red One camera for his short film, and he asked me if I could program a GUI for converting the R3D files to proxy(?).
Since I am unfamiliar with the Red's work flow, is there any specifications or API documentation that I could look at? I have leafed through the operation manual, and there seems to be be very little documentation on the format itself. Is it proprietary? I also heard that there is some scripts to convert R3D files into quicktime proxies(?), but I couldn't find them.
Sorry if I seem like I am talking out of my #@$, I am not yet familiar with the terminology. Any help would be very much appreciated.
