I think we are right in the middle of a technology black hole.
My MacBook pro pretty much runs Better than my 8 core and 12 core towers.
The towers may render slightly quicker. But CS6 premier runs better on the laptop..
So the problem is... Laptop just needs a red rocket card or double the processing power and it's perfect.
The tower has the red rocket but the processors are so old compared to the i7... So you loose there.
Both can edit the r3ds smoothly. Bit once you start doing effects.. CS6 premier starts to clunk... and gets worse and worse..
Thunderbolt red rocket on the laptop will work a treat.
But a new processor on a tower, shit loads of ram and a red rocket in a
hopefully new Mac tower...coming out this year. Will save all of us that want to work Raw
Forgive me, you're entirely right I wasn't thinking.....apologies.
I 100% agree with your amazement -- I feel the same way! It's so cool dropping an R3D into Premiere, and it just works! I feel like we're sooooo close to having a perfect workflow!
Here's what I'd like to see, maybe the guys at RED or Adobe can say if there's any chance of it happening?
A Redcine-X Pro Plugin for premiere and/or every feature in RCX being reflected in Premiere. You can edit basic metadata like WB within Premiere right now, and if you edit it in RCX, it shows up in Premiere when you import the r3d file, which is awesome, but I've been using Alchemy and Film Look in just about every shot lately, and those don't show up in Premiere. I'd love to be able to have a colorist work on 1-lights in RCX, and an editor work on the edit, and the clips get updated in Premiere as the colorist works on them (or at least, when the editor clicks "refresh metadata" or quits and reloads Premiere). And of course, for projects where the editor is also the colorist, being able to open up an RCX plugin within Premiere for each clip would be so sweet.
At that point, we would have 1-lights straight through almost the final edit all in RAW, with no roundtripping! With Colorista II, we could get pretty decent grading capability as plugins, and export a final movie straight from the RAW (so cool!). What sucks is Colorista doesn't have things like multiple secondaries, and tracking. If it had those, I don't think anything could ever be better in any way and everyone would be happy and no one would ever complain ever again ever.
Looking forward to playing with SpeedGrade. Maybe that's better than Colorista?
Either way, Adobe + RED FTW! The RED workflow problems that everyone likes to complain about just got a lot smaller, and I think are about to disappear entirely. Never thought I'd say it, but I do believe I'm a Premiere convert. Very impressed.
[QUOTE=Mark Toia;1013568]ITS A BLOODY MIRACLE !!!!!! ( yes this maybe old news for you ADOBE purists)
I told ya Mark! I told ya! I've had to remain quiet for a LONG time... but I'm glad folks like you are coming around!
Hahaha ! I think you will, like me, change your "poor man editing solution", Mark.
I am just doing test on my macbook pro i7 17 between CS6 Snow Leopard, versus CS6 Lion for being able to use the AMD graphic card of the Macbook. But my bet is that the next move won't be on apple notebbok but Win 7 !!!
