Since RED ROCKET is going to be released soon (and this thread is getting pretty long), it seems we should create a separate section for it here on RED User.
Maybe a mod can add it into the DSMC area beneath the RED RAY section?
I love SuperMicro cases, well built, great cooling channels, parts readily available. I use them for my servers.
But the power supplies, particularly the dual redundant power supplies and case fans are INCREDIBLY loud.
This guy http://supermicro.com/products/chass...836TQ-R800.cfm sounds like jet taking off when it powers up.
No really, a jet taking off.
Wait so Red Alert! is finally going to be available for PC users?
I'd like to see the SDK portion made modular, so we don't have to wait for ever increasing numbers of apps to get updated support when a new build like 20 is released.
Think of it like a device driver. One for Windows, one for OSX and one for Linux distributions. Then all the apps associated with parsing R3D files instantly get updated at the same time (as long as the API hooks don't change). PhysX is a good example of this in use today, IMHO.
And add my voice to those calling for the unified .look file structure to come a bit faster! I would dearly love to set my look and curves in RedCine and upload it to camera....
Thanks for listening Red!
while i don't disagree that Davinci and Color were developed with different goals in mind, I do disagree that color can not be used in a high end commercial environment with clients in the room. We do this on a daily basis and have award winning results (the other nominees were both graded on the davinci).
in fact, i would argue, because of the extraordinary overhead that Davinci users must pay to stay in the game, you're limited in terms of how much time and creativity you can give to any given project. What I mean is, the same budget that buys you four hours in a Davinci, might buy you 16 in a Color suite. With all that extra time, you can accomplish things you'd never have the time to do in traditional telecine because no one could afford. Or spend the same amount of time for 1/4 the cost. Most of my clients would rather have the same results for less money, or more time in the suite for the same money, than pay for the overhead of traditional telecine suites.
The Davinci is an amazing tool, it certainly has the advantages of being a product 10, 15 years in the making. But Color is only getting better. Five years down the line, is there going to be enough of a difference to justify the $225,000 in additional overhead? For many of you, it will be. After all, there are still people that cut on Avid, but ...
If you're interested in seeing the kind of work we do in color, you can see my reel at www.alexbickel.com.
I'm very excited to see what the red rocket can do.
Steve hit the nail on the head. Right now we are on Color version 1.0. 2.0 has the potential to be just plain awesome when combined with a rocket.
