    Red 4K footage... What is the best camera settings ?

    Hello all,

    A 4k project is about to start (next week)... it will be shot on a Red.  Will Red Raw files be "painlessly" ama/transcoded into Avid ?  (Shooting 4K @ 29.97, RAW and delivery on UHD @ 29.97, XAVC)

    Since this is a new project is there a camera resolution/setting that I can ask the field crew to use ?  For example, I asked them NOT to shoot Pro-Res since I'm on a PC.   Currently have access to Composer 8.4.3 on a Win7/64 on a HPZ820 and lots of Thunderbolt storage.

    Althought I've been on avid since 1994, this will be my first 4K.  Any pitfalls to avoid ?

    Many thanks to everyone.

    Michel

    Hi Michel.

    I think prores wouldnt be a problem on Win also.

    These are some good tests for you to try and see.

    Whatever file links and can be transcoded will work like a charm as far as your drive is fast enough.

    Xavc runs good here.

    Hello George,

    Many thanks for your reply... I'll have a look at the RED website and see if I can find some more info.

    Merci.
