Ive been using REDCine to transcode my 4.5k R3d files into 1080p ProRes422 Proxy's Debayered @ 1/4. Everything is going well, the 'white paper' for RCX was pretty informative on how to do this.
What it doesnt say is how to conform with RCX. Im i supposed to use the Log and Transfer in FCP to conform using Media Manager? If not, how to i go back to my 4k R3Ds/ProRes4444? Im sure that RCX is better than the Log and Transfer window in FCP, but I dont know the step by step process on how to do it. I guess im looking for a 'white papter' for how to conform with RCX.
EDIT: I should note that I am aware that i will need to export an EDL or XML, I have not really worked with these much. Is there a preference in what to use? Why?
Edit# 2, it looks like the FCP XML worked and that RCX has automatically picked up the 4k data from my Proxy's. So now i just need to Export my Timeline to either a ProRes4444 Quicktime or I can do a Wrapped R3d to keep the 4k and then send that to Color? Why do people sometimes go back to FCP? Or do they go back to FCP after they send to Color, not RCX?
Do i want to Generate FCP XML when making QuickTime Wrappers? I choose YES and did a test export of Wrappers, it looks like it made F,H,M,and P Proxy of the full clips that i choose. I think the XML it creates is supposed to be imported back into FCP and it is a new sequence linked to my F Proxy's that i just created so i may send that to Color? I can not however, find where that new XML went :/
I may have just figured it out on my own, but id love for someone to confirm my finds or give tips/advice.
