So I fire up the RED on a job for an outa town producer. I record 1080P 24 on the RED Digital Magazine. During lunch I download the first two mags to the PC and at the end of the day the second 2. I typically shoot 1.5 to 2.5 hrs per day.
Just for math ease lets say I've shot 1 hour of footage.
NOw I need to render this out into a format for delivery for online in final cut
ie the Panasonic HD 1080 Format. (will others be different rendering times?)
Of course everything is in flux. but given a vanilla duo with a gig type typical machine. And for those of us who are less than computer experts. I'm not looking for some exact answer just trying to see in the RED will enable me to deliver the client in a timely way.... ie before the end of fedex that night.
A. Will I be able to render this out in near real time?
B. Will my 1 hour of footage take 8 hours to render?
C. Will I be done in 10 minutes.
D. What will be the difference between this and other possible codec outputs?
