Hey all, we are finally getting around to editing our project, and so far have been having a terrible time trying to get RedCine to cooperate. It begins the export and crashes or pretends it's doing something useful but never actually writes the data (for instance, it exported about three minutes of good footage and then about 40 min of a single frame)
We gave up on RedCine and are now using Red Alert to edit using the 1k proxies. I really, really don't like this idea since A)FCP doesn't yet have a native REDCODE option and thus is attempting to convert everything and B) what's the point in finishing in 1k when there's perfectly good 2k footage burning HDD space!
I'd love to just tough it out with RedCine and edit in ProRes 422 but my primary edit machine is the latest model 20" iMac w/ 4GB RAM and I'm not sure how well it'll handle 2k. On the weekdays I can use a MacPro, but it's only got 2GB and it shows... :(
Ideas? I need to have a rough cut ready asap.
