Does anyone know if Full Debayer might be a bit softer then half-res high?
I think that my shots rendered to 1080 in Half-Res High are sharper then the exact shots rendered to 4k in Full Debayer.
Is this possible?
Ok, I just did a quick search and it seems this is the norm. And I see that Jim is advocating doing a full debayer for online-always. I thought back in the day, the difference was negligible. The noise pattern in the full debayer is slightly.... different. Maybe a bit smoother, but also softer.
Now I'm confused as I always thought the difference between full and half was essentially impossible to see. And I need to send my 1080 to Color very soon to make an up & coming deadline.
Gawd, it seems like post info changes all the time. I just can't go to Redcine-x. RedRushes & RedAlert always worked so well.
This is so frustrating. I was originally trying to do the god damn blowups but I noticed that using the 4k for the blowups didn't give me a better image then the 1080 blown up on the FCp timeline. And everyone always touts Red for it's reframes, but nobody knows how to do it.
Sometimes I get so so so frustrated. The "Red" army was originally built from the Indie filmmakers, but it seems like only the big boys can afford the tools to make it work well.
Everything about Red has gone upmarket...
