First off, I'd like to appologize if I'm repeating any questions previously asked by other members. I did search for answers but this forum grows faster then wildfire.
I do almost all the the first light corrections and transcoding of RED footage at our office. Currently for project work I use Clipfinder and RED ALERT for grading, and transcode using RED RUSHES. I'm intersted in the new REDCINE - X build as it has the new color and gamma space. After playing around with it for a bit I have a few questions.
1. In RED ALERT any chances you make to the R3D are saved in a RSX file and remain associated with the R3D unless deleted or altered. Does REDCINE -X do such a thing? Or is there a way to save a project (like the old REDCINE) so that the changes you've made are saved, and can be recalled at a later date? This way you don't need to save a preset for every single adjustment you make.
2. What's the processing time like compared to RED RUSHES? We work on a very quick turn around which usually works like this : Shoot, Grade in the same day, Transcode overnight, cut and deliver within days of shooting.
If I can still transcode about 250 GB of 4k 16:9 RC36 to 720p Pro Res 422(HQ) over night, then I'm all good.
3. Is anyone using this on real projects yet? I know we're still in (early)Beta, but I'd love to hear from somebody thats made the move from RED ALERT to 'X' and their thoughts.
4. Does REDCINE-X attach audio like RED RUSHES, or ignore it like the old REDCINE ?
Thank you in advance!
