I browsed the forum and have watched several workflow videos now and haven't found anything that addresses this issue. I'm on Adobe CS5.0, production pro bundle.
I'm editing a mixture of 4k r3d files and Canon 5d footage over multiple sequences. My master sequence is a 2k timeline (2048x1024) - when I bring in my r3d files, they are scaled down to 50% and thus need rendering. Once they are done rendered, the 2048x1024 footage will be stretched and letterboxed (to fit the 1920x960 previews)... Is there a way to avoid this? If I make my sequence 1920x960, then I'll be cropping my red footage and need to render everything anyway.
Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers!
