I am an editor for a short film shooting on Epic. DP is looking to do a 2:40 center cut extraction (4122x1718) from 5k 2:1 for the shoot as the director wants to have a bit of room to do any slight reframing if need be. I`m wondering when I bring those R3D`s into Red Cine X Pro, will the center extract already be applied to the footage automatically through the meta data, or do I need to apply the center extract on the all of the clips manually through the framing tab.
And also, I`m currently messing with a sample EPIC R3D in RedCine`s framing tab, and I`m having trouble figuring out how to readjust the framing of my custom 2:40 center cut preset without having to drag the edges. I know you can locked the aspect ratio to 2:39 and adjust the edges of the crop to reframe, but I`m finding it a bit of a pain/imprecise and I would like to just be able to grab a center point and tweak the locked crop to where I want it on the 2:1 image.
If anyone could help I`d appreciate it.
