    I do wonder what the time cost will be however. Some of those Topaz outputs take some serious time and horsepower.

    i have it setup on a second system, and it can feel free to chug away for hours if needed while i’m doing other shots.

    The free version of Resolve will do all you need to do.

    I convert to Avid friendly media. Usually .mxf files, dnxhd of some type.

    If you don’t want to use Resolve, than transcoding inside Avid would probably be the next best option. There is metadata that needs to be maintained during the transcode process, to enable you to go back to camera original files, if you so desire, for color, or finishing. R3d raw files offer a lot of flexibility when performing color correction operations, that basic rec 709 clips don’t offer.

    You have the ability to go back to the original camera settings and adjust the exposure, and color balance, the same way the original camera operator would have.

    If you want to look into Resolve’s workflow, I have posted some workflow videos on the topic.

    Again, metadata is crucial, and in Resolve pay attention to the timecode and file naming settings, as shown below.

    Yes, Avid has been able to work with Red footage for over 10 years.

    You are going to need to download the red ama plug in.

    You will also probably want to transcode, as red files can be a pretty heavy lift, depending on your debayer settings.

    I personally do my transcodes in Resolve simply because of the speed of the workflow.

  • You also have to be very aware of what frame rate your editor is working in for motion graphics.

    Stills obviously don’t care.

  • there is a command to select everything to the right of your curser.

    Turn on the tracks you want, and then do a “select everyting to the right”

  • I use text++ for my ale editing.

    Another method you could use would be to unlink the clips in Avid, use the modify clips command to turn off the unwanted audio tracks, and then relink the clips.

    I’ve done this when there are way too many blank audio channels coming in from certain cameras or recorders.

    Visually, i agree, it is a bit odd to mark an out at the end of the timeline, but from a realistic “working” standpoint, it has no effect on your ability to mark an in point here…play or scrub to another spot, and mark an out point. Not sure a “workaround” is really necessary.

    my workflow has always been to add a marker at each change request point of the version of the timeline the changes are directed towards. In other words, you go through the entire change list, adding markers, before you do any of the changes. Then, duplicate the timeline (always do changes to a duplicate timeline) and your markers will remain in the original position as the timecode naturally changes based on what you do to the timeline.

    I currently use Kollaborate for client review, and can import the notes into either Resolve or Avid, where they again show up a markers, before I do any of the changes.

  • can you not resize and position the key item with in it’s own effect controls?

    I think “Boston” has truly gotten to the root of the problem here. Very helpful.

    Brie, is there no way to ban the bots that are filling all these forums?
