Ok so correct me if I'm wrong here, but once Redcode RAW has been dropped into a FCP timeline there is no way to monitor it to an HD display?
The only way I've heard is to transcode to ProRes, or some other codec and preview it 2k out from an AJA or Decklink card. Is this correct?
So a practical workflow for a 4k finish would be.
1. Shoot 4k
2. Transcode to 2k w/ProRes? (So we can see it on an appropriate display)
3. Edit in FCP
4. Kickout EDL
5. Somehow matchback to orginal footage.
6. Color Correct in highend app
7. Output to Digital Cinema Server or filmout.
2k is just gravy, transcode to 2k and stay there!
How are we to accurately work with footage we can't even view on a display?
What programs can we use to matchback from our 2k offline to our 4k online?
Scratch is supposed to handle the Redcode RAW natively, but how much is Scratch, and isn't it a windows only solution? (I don't know much about Scratch so I could be completely wrong here, I'm assuming it's ridiculously expensive since they didn't even have a booth at NAB, only an appointment only demo. That says $$$ to me.)
What does your workflow look like?
