Everyone wants a solid workflow - one that saves time & money. We all want the type of workflow that keeps production moving along at a steady pace. However, designing that comes with a few obstacles in the way. Thats why G-Technology created this guide that details proper drive selection, as well as best practices around data management, so that you can build an efficient workflow for any RED DSMC2 Camera project.
Considerations When Shooting On A DSMC2
Capture up to 8k R3D's (which means RAW) at variable compression ratios to manage your data volume. Depending on your frame rates and compression ratio, you can also generate ProRes or DNx Proxy files simutaneously in-camera. After offload, take advantage of hardware GPU acceleration from Nvidia, which can allow for real time 8K R3D playback, and improved render times on your system. One more key is to set up your camera with new IPP2 Color Pipeline for its improved color management in a more intuitive process.
