View Full Version : Red Camera footage into a DVCPro HD 1080 24p TIMELINE

Anyone here ever taken RED footage and placed it into a DVCPro HD 1080 24p timeline?

I'm new to it (and fairly new to higher end editing) and assume there is probably some kind of conversion I need to do....but any help would be greatly appreciated.

The shoot is in 2 days.

You don't say what editor you're using (so I will assume FCP). I've worked with RED footage in RedCine, and I've worked with 1080p footage on a PC, but you should be able to export what you need from RedCine or Redalert. Drop that into the timeline, and you should be good to go.

Sorry. I meant FCP.

And thank you, that helps.

You should probably ask for particulars on this workflow over at REDUser. I'm sure they can help you more. I don't use FCP (or a MAC) but most of them do so they should have details.

are you editing the proxies are did you convert the footage to a different format?
