I've been reading lots of threads, read the white papers, and experimented for days but I still feel stuck with the Red workflow. This is my first project editing red footage. I've shot about 90 minutes worth of footage that needs to be edited down to a 10 minute scene for online sharing. I'm working off a new macbook pro with the R3D files, Color, RedCine, and Final Cut Pro. I've already transcoded and ingested the footage in FCP.
Here's my challenge... I need to edit the shots in order to match the color and lighting in one frame to the next. Some frames are appropriately shot and others need small adjustments to the Kelvin and ISO. The tweaks are minor and extremely simple in RedCine-X after experimenting. But without editing the footage together and seeing the changes from one frame to the next, I have no way of knowing what footage needs tweaking and how much.
So with that in mind, what should my workflow be in order to properly work with this footage and quickly turnaround my 10 minute cut? From everything I've seen, it is virtually impossible to go from FCP to RedCine right? But what can I do to properly tweak the lighting and colors in my shots if I haven't seen the footage in sequence yet?
I've briefly tinkered with Color over the past few days and the interface and tools available are a total mess compared to the simple tweaks I need in RedCine-X so I'd love to avoid going that route if possible. Is there a solid workflow to accomplish that?
