Ok so it is finally here, my first direction with a RED cam, coincidentally it is also my first attempt at directing a "real" videoclip, shooting was a breeze and now I am about to edit.
I just have a few questions for you Vegas+Red users, here it goes.
- I can't seem to be able to drop the proxies onto the timeline, do I need a special plugin for that? My machine is quite strong and I can playback fine but down the road I fear that with all the colo correction ad adjustments that will follow my machine will eventually start to drag, with proxies I am sure it won't happen.
- Would you suggest that I color correct through the metadata first or can I simply use Vegas native CC functions?
Any other tips that you think might be helpful for a newbie like me please feel free to share.
