I have both Apple and PC workhorses in the shop, but for obvious reasons, my main RED work horses are now PC (overclocked Main Gear Shift boxes with Rocket cards).
That said, I need to find a better workflow between them. When I'm doing commercial work, I try to stick to the REDCINE-X to Premiere (CS6 on PC) path. But for personal projects, I prefer to work with Final Cut Pro X (FCPX). I'm not an editor and my strengths are in shooting, creative, and post-fx. FCPX is much faster for me to work with than Premiere for personal stuff.
I want to use the grading, visual fx, and rendering speed of the PC, but then I want to work on my edits on the Mac. Knowing full well this is slowing down my workflow, it's just my personal path for small projects.
What workflow and codec would you guys recommend for 4K and 5K FF (beginning R3D) on the PC, and then play-ready transferring over to the Mac?
Thanks for your input!
