Red Epic – Avid MC 8.3 Online Workflow Advice Needed
I’m editing a series of commercials and just wanted some advice about the red epic workflow.
everything has been shot at 4k, i’ve been told its all at 24fps.
the final delivery is QT’s 1920×1080 for internet use.
We would want to grade everything to B&W in the avid.
All clips have sound
I am using an iMac, OS X.10.10.5
Avid MC 8.3.1
There doesn’t appear to be a huge amount of rushes.
I don’t have access to a davinci resolve for this project
I want to keep this project as simple as possible.
my questions are
1) what is the best way of getting the red footage in to the avid, then bak out for final deliveries? I was going to export PRO RES QT’s in REDCINE X PRO, then link to media via AMA, do everything in the avid then export as same as source. But the iMac won’t play apple pro res
2)Is there a way to double check that al rushes have been shot at 24fps. Normally the camera department would have all that info but there are a few discrepancies so I would like to double check before transcoding.
3)is there a B&W lut for the red epic, as the client is wanting all the footage to be gradedB&W, and a lut would be a great starting point.
4)I want to make sure that I am working with the best picture and sound resolution if i need transcode.
Thanks for your advice
