I've recently gotten my Epic and have been shooting some jobs on it and have run into the inevitable issue of the transcode. Seems like post houses have gotten lazy in the wake of the Alexa and I'm sure you all know the story.
So I've been doing a little transcoding in Redcine X and have come up with some settings that seem like a decent combination of speed and quality. Essentially a 1080p Pro Res (standard Pro Res) file with a 1/4 debayer.
I'm running it on a Mac Pro 2008 quad core with 10Gb RAM. But am just wondering if there are any other solutions out there that accelerate the transcoding process without costing an arm and a leg? Like GPU accelerated or something similar? Also, considering a mobile solution. Perhaps something that can go in a PCIe Expander, but something that doesn't cost 4.75K like the Red Rocket, perhaps there's not one?
Many thanks, in advance :-)
