I'm working as an assistant editor on a film which used a RED camera during production. Now we're in post and we've cut a rough edit and are preparing to down-convert our 2k pro res files into 1k pro res files-- we're just going to need to reduce the clip size for the full-on edit, then conform back to 2k for final export. Is it best to down convert the 2k files using compressor? or to go back to the original RAW files and make them all from them (took 3 weeks last time). Then what do we have to do for the conform? Is there an automated way to do it? Or does it have to be done by hand.
Thanks for any help whatsoever.
