A R3D Workflow

Just the Cut

RED. Love them or despise them. That seems to be the polar climate for this camera company and its fan(boys) and dissenters. The camera is always in Beta. Be it a Red One MX, an EPIC, or the forthcoming Scarlet (whenever those actually start hitting the wild). It freezes, stalls, crashes, or quits on you in the most unwanted situations. But, when Venus is rising and you have a mild barometric pressure that day, the camera miraculously works like a charm. I had the opportunity to DIT and edit/color a spot this past weekend and would like to share my experience with the workflow I used. Check out the video above for the scoop.

Cheers and happy shooting.

*UPDATE* Thanks to Jesse Rosten for the heads up on what I believe a better R3D Premiere Pro workflow.
