    This is a big question I have. Will Resolve on a Mac be able to take advantage of a RedRocket for enhanced performance with R3D files?

    best regards,

    If so it would be really cool.

    Why would it need to?

    I thought real time full deBayer would be part of the Resolve platform.

    Red deBayer on the base Linux systems is not real time at max quality/max resolution mode. Co-processor chassis(s) can be added to accelerate that as needed. The Mac platform will not support adding these co-processor chassis.

    Will the mac OS version deBayer R3Ds for those willing to live w/out realtime capabilities?

    My understanding is that the Resolve application will deBayer the R3D files, as it does on the Linux platform. But until I actually have a chance to see it myself, I can’t comment on what the performance will be. On the Linux R1 platform (the entry level system), you can get real time playback at lower quality settings.

    Further to Dwaine’s information, the Resolve Coprocessor cannot be connected to a Mac due to the lack of InfiniBand on the Mac platform.

    “The MAC version will deBayer 4K r3ds to 1/2 Res Good quality in real time.”

    How fast does your storage have to be to pull that off and does that include audio?

    PCIe will not cut it ?

    We will review the Red Rocket integration but for now, consider that there are only 4 PCIe slots in the MacPro and only two extra power connectors, which we use when a GTX285 is installed.
