We shot a short film on red 4k 16/9 25p.
We are editing in Avid. The shots were converted to DNxHD on Metafuze and Redrushes.
We plan to do the color grading in Apple Color.
I made a few short tests exporting a CMX3600 EDL from Avid and importing into Color. With earlier Color versions I often had the problem, that shots which had the same filename in the EDL due to 8 character limit were not found by Color.
(16 char EDLs don't work in Color)
I made a new test with Color 1.5. Just some edits and two R3D files with the same 8 character filename in the EDL. And this time it worked. Color relinked to the R3D media with no problems.
Is this an improvement in new Color 1.5 or just a coincidence?
Has anyone of you made experiences with a similar workflow on a longer project? Please let me know. I will test with a longer sequence and more shots as soon as our editing has come further.
