I'm working on a series of short projects shot on RED which I'll be putting together using Sony Vegas. I've done a lot of audio editing before but just at the start of my foray into video.
My question is at what point should I be correcting the colour and sound (e.g. EQ, compression). My head tells me that I should correct the master files either before or after I edit, so that any changes are then cascaded down to all the subclips I've used. But most things I've read suggest that colour/sound is applied on a clip-by-clip basis, which seems really fiddly to me if I've got a ten minute sequence using subclips from many different files, meaning I'll be repeating the same corrections over and over.
And with sound in particular, processing can only be applied at the track level, which means if I wanted different EQ profiles for different scenes I'd have to put them all on different tracks, possibly ending up with dozens of tracks.
I'm fine once everything's on the timeline, but at what stage should I correct the R3Ds?
And if anyone could point me towards a guide to colour grading R3Ds in Vegas, that would be fandabbydozee.
Cheers for your help,
