I am making a short visual effects film using the red one as part of an assignment at university. So we have a lot of visual effects to do within Nuke X stuff like merging the raw footage with CGI renders, doing match moving etc. I am now starting to think about the grade (haven't touched the footage yet) i originally did the edit in Premiere pro and exported used 720p tiff sequences for use in nuke for faster workflow.
Now i have got that edit in Red Cine X Pro and want to be able to out put raw redtrim files but at a smaller resolution say 720p. it doesn't seem this is possible?
The reason i want to be able to do this is because Nuke Does support changing all the raw data just like in RCXP and would be useful because i could change the grade in context of our CG elements. however 4K is too big for my computer to handle compositing 4k and its painful to work with. and as a student i do not have access to a red rocket!
additionally Ive heard that red cine x offers really just preliminary grade options, and basically having forked out a lot of money to be able to shoot RED one footage i am looking to get the best results using as much raw data as possible. is there a better workflow say for doing a preliminary grade in red cine x and then say moving to something like davinci for a final grade? if so what format should i use? open EXR, PDX?
any suggestions or advice would be fantastic!
