The beta version of the RED Camera Adobe Importer Plug-in is going to be available in the next few weeks for customers to download at www.red.com/support. The plug-in brings native support for RED R3D files to Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, After Effects CS4 and Encore CS4 and allows 4K resolution native R3D files to be dropped straight onto the timeline without transcoding or rewrapping, so editors can work with a truly native, color-rich, 4K tapeless workflow on their desktop tools.
To use the RED/Adobe workflow, customers must
have the RED plug-in and the CS4 product versions with the free Adobe Premiere Pro 4.0.1 update (see article below). A 64-bit operating system is strongly recommended for RED workflows. Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 has been re-architected for 64-bit operating systems to use large memory more effectively (up to 20GB of memory for Adobe Premiere Pro alone, up to 64GB of memory for a large Production Premium workflow).
With the native support for RED R3D files offered by the plug-in, Adobe is furthering the integration of tapeless camera formats into its line of professional video products, and making post-production workflows faster, more flexible, and more efficient. Direct your customers to the RED/Adobe Partnership Statement and FAQ for more information.
P.S. We will have a video on how we support Red on AdobeTV when it’s available!
