I’m working with a director who is cutting on FCP7 with ProRes files. We both have identical hard drives with the ProRes and original RED files, so he sends me the timeline XML, I import it into Premiere CS5.5 and then do some clean up before final color and conform in After Effects.
Is there an easier way to online RED .r3d files? I have to click the item in my bin, replace footage, then go into my timeline and replace footage with that newly updated item in the bin (with the menu option replace from bin, I’m not doing it totally manually).
I know Automatic Duck can auto-online RED files (if I understand correctly) when going from FCP to After Effects but I need the intermediate step of Premiere (To adjust the RED files because Red Cine X doesn’t seem to import XML files without crashing on me, and to adjust some cuts as I’ve had a mix of 24fps and 23.976 timebase from two cameras).
Is there some trick or method I’m not aware of?
