Hi RED SWAT,
we are currently encountering problems of decoding footage quickly enough using RED CINE. As we shot in 16:9 mode (not knowing that it doesn't open in RED ALERT and QT CODEC by now) we are now forced to decode everything with RED CINE.
So we wait dreamingly for the bug fix for QT and RED ALERT.
It appears to us that in RED CINE all opened .r3d files get locked, ie. no other system is allowed to open / read the files.
As RED CINE is review & transcoding only tool it makes really NO SENSE AT ALL to have the files locked (except to prevent their deleteing while they are opened for reading).
So could you do us a big favor and remove that lock (or at least give us an option to lock or not lock the opened footage).
We have enough machines to spread the decoding process (which otherwise will take calculated 5 days alone on a single system...).
Please drop us a line so we can better decide on how to proceed from here.
Is is urgent.
