    color workflow

    I have a workflow question:

    I want to work at full resolution on a ultra short film with a tight turnaround. Files are 2k prorres 4444 from Alexa Mini. I've tested it and my system can play the files fine.

    I want to export a 2 minute cut to give to the color facility. I don't want to lose any quality. I'd like them to have the full range to work with.

    Is this possible? Thanks!

    Assuming you imported with no modifiation of levels, or you AMA linked and transcoded without baking in colour adapters, or you are AMA linked to the media and remove colour adapters, then a same as source export will give you a continuous file with exactly the same quality as the camera originals.

    They probably want an EDL or AAF to slice up the file at the edit points.

    Thanks David. 

    So as a final step, I will remove all the adapters. I assume that the ouptut dimensions must match the source as well? They are shooting 2k but want a 1080p file from me. I'm starting to think this is a stupid plan.

    Thanks.

    Not really stupid, I have delivered network shows for grading like this. Saves the hassle of a conform.

    A same as source quicktime in the same sized project as the Arri rushes will give them a transparent conform.

    I am suprised they want you to mess with it at all by resizing; so I would give them the 2K file...
