I've been editing my first two RED projects in Adobe Premiere CS6 (Windows). I do not have Resolve, so I plan to do slight correction with RCX. I do everything within the program and my workflow is as follows:
- Create New Project in R3D 1080p 23.976 timeline
- Import R3D files
- Cut up in timeline.
- Do slight color correction by using the built-in RCX source settings in Premiere (I right-click on each individual clips for this.)
- Do a secondary color grade with Magic Bullet Colorista in Premiere (video effect preset)
So first off, is this a good workflow? I don't want to miss out on something that will optimize my image and finding this out later.
Second, when it comes time to exporting, I usually do the H.264 HDTV 1080p option and the video looks fine. I understand that this is meant for the web, so what should I be exporting my project as if I wanted a master file? Uncompressed AVI?
