@Mike thanks. I've been a member for a few years, since I first shot on the M-X and had problems with that ver. of the firmware. Since then I've just been a casual observer, keeping up with the latest talk, but not participating much. But now that there are a growing number of RED users hopping on the CGT bandwagon, I thought I'd at least give you guys some access to it's creator if you have questions.
@Les The tracker in CS6 seems super fast, but it's hard to tell because it may just be all the RAM I added. For quick power window grades to fix skin tone on a face, SpeedGrade is excellent, the only problem is SG is really only good for masking, secondaries, and tech passes. It lacks any kind of curves adjustments. And, as of yet, no round tripping, no AAF or XML export.
I do all my secondary CC in SpeedGrade which is super fast for that, export the LUTs, import it into AE, apply them where needed. Do the rest of my complex grades with ColorGHear at 32bit, export 444 linear off, and get stunning results.
The tracker in Resolve is excellent. And at 1080p its totally free. But it'll cost you $999 for 4k.
And no, I don't really have a comprehensive description. I've been busy working on the Film School Tutorials and never got around to putting one together, the walkthrough (primer) videos pretty much cover it. In short, it is a layer/node based system, it has ColorFist which is replacement for Colorista, a 3-way color correcter, GHears to fix DSLR artifacting, noise, and chroma skew, and over 65 GHears that can be used individually, or combined to create any look you desire. Everything else about the system is incorporated through AE's own state-of-art infrastructure.- Tracking, Masks, and I've customized AE's NR...

Together it's over an hour of video... I will try, when I'm not shooting on a project, to put together something more concise, and something in PDF form that details the system.
For now, there's a thread over at the GH2 hack forum that covers things from when I first made it available in January, until now.
Here's a test I did on hacked GH2 footage. If it can do this to 4:2:0 DSLR footage, imagine what it can do for 444 R3D footage.
