Are you Vegas users strictly using Vegas for your entire workflow? From SSD to finish? Or are you using redcine-x first for trimming, cc etc, then vegas? I'm trying to establish a solid workflow and am unsure on what to use and settings to export, etc., with Vegas, Redcine-X, and possibly davinci resolve. Can you guys share your workflow process?
I've only edited one Red project in Vegas so far but had no problems. No transcoding of r3d files and I could preview my edit in realtime (albeit not at full quality). The only deficiency I see in Vegas is in color grading.... it's possible in Vegas but Redcine X is better. Now that we have a Scarlet, I'll be doing a lot more full projects in Vegas with Red footage. I've experimented with outputting an EDL in Vegas and importing it in Redcine X for grading, but was only successful with very simple 1 track projects.... not sure if that's a practical workflow.
After editing is complete, switch to the 32-bit version and export an AAF. 64-bit has everything except that, such a blatant miss! Anyway, a lot of major finishing software will accept the AAF, which is Avid MC compatible. If not or you need XML, you can go through a software like Premiere Pro, which will accept the AAF and then export to XML or Send to Speedgrade (though the latter is not really an option for R3D).
I met with a few people from Sony Creative Software at NAB. One of their engineers assured me that it would be easy to implement RDM importing in Vegas. Currently, changes to meta data saved in Redcine X cannot be imported into Vegas. It would seem that is about to change (and Vegas will be keeping up with Premiere in this regard). I'll keep you posted.

Anyone know what settings are best for rendering in 4k projection? This is not for internet upload. I have the opportunity to screen something on a 4k projector so I'd like to know what settings I should use. Thanks.
I would render to Cineform 422 or Cineform 444 to get the best quality for 4k playback on a PC. But you need to purchase Cineform to do that (www.cineform.com).
