I'm just starting up a RED project and am blurry eyed from all the research on workflow. No shortage of threads on workflow here, but it seems there are endless questions and many opinions on different ways to go. So here's my current workflow idea based on all my research. Any comments/tweaks/questions/advice/whatever greatly appreciated:
Project is a :60 spot. FCP 6.0.4. MacPro Dual 2.8, 10gigRAM.
Edit with 2k Proxies (I know there's debate on this vs ProRes conversion)
Import into Crimson
Conform the R3D files in Crimson and color them.
Export new XML
Export colored shots to the file format of choice
Import new XML back into FCP
View new sequence with final colored footage
Export final QT's in format of choice
Makes sense to me but I haven't done it yet and haven't purchased Crimson yet.
Thoughts? Many thanks.
