  • RED IPP2 Image Processing Pipeline

    According to RED, IPP2 offers a completely overhauled workflow experience, from image capture through post production.

    IPP2 enhancements include: • Better management of challenging colors • Smoother highlight roll-off • Improved shadow detail • More accurate mid-tone hues • An improved demosaicing algorithm to achieve higher detail at the same pixel resolution • Simpler and more intuitive workflow • A workflow designed for HDR from the ground up • Industry-standard naming • Standardized color space and gamma

    REDCINE-X PRO® software application is designed specifically for transcoding and pre-editorial image manipulation of REDCODE RAW (R3D) footage. The process is non-destructive, enabling you to make image adjustments—while preserving the original RAW format. This gives you the ability to return to the original files at any time for transcoding, scaling, cropping, or correcting color.

    Download the latest version of REDCINE-X PRO at www.red.com/downloads.

    Real time 8K playback on Windows Vista 64bit machines is achievable with the new NVIDIA CUDA accelerated Turing architecture GPU. The least expensive, the NVIDIA 2080 Ti, is around $1,200 USD, and can be installed in a single-CPU HP Z4 workstation which has a cost of around $2,800 USD.

    NVIDIA RTX laptops including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer, and Samsung, provide real-time playback at up to 8K

    The use of R3D in a Media Composer workflow comes down to choosing whether to work with the format directly through AMA using the R3D AMA plug-in, or transcoding the material beforehand using a “dailies software” application.

    In the case of RED files, RED provides a free application—REDCINE-X PRO—to do this as part of the overall solution. One advantage of using REDCINE-X PRO is that feature enhancements will be available in RED’s software before other third parties implement and release them via the SDK.

    Regardless of camera, the project settings camera raw and the color page camera raw palette processes the images prior to the DaVinci Resolve image processing pipeline.

    If you want to grade in that pipeline in a particular color space and gamma you need to put the Resolve timeline in that color space and gamma.

    There are many ways to do that but here is a simple way using RCM (Resolve Color Management) Then at the end of the image pipeline you need to transform to the output color space and gamma and do that with the appropiate curve. Again, there are many ways to do that but here is a simple way using RCM. No LUT is needed.

    In Project Settings, Color Management, select DaVinci Resolve Color Managed. Then set the Timeline color space, in this case, REDWideGamutRGB/Log3G10. This will place the timeline in the correct color space so when the r3d is decoded using the camera metadata its into REDWideGamutRGB/Log3G10. When you grade in Resolves color tools you are in that space.

    But you are likely to want to see and export in a different color space. So,forTimeline to Output Gamut Mapping, select the mode you are after. In this case RED IPP2 Gamut Mapping.

    You can also set the Output Tone Map, Highlight Roll Off and Peak NIT value.

    (Note: these three appear in the color page camera raw palette and look like you can adjust them there but you cant when in this mode. I'll get that fixed as the camera raw palette output is always, regardless of camera, into the color processing pipeline and we want that to be at the end of the pipeline, not the beginning. That's why its set in Project settings, color management)

    So now, you can adjust the ISO in the color page camera raw palette and also grade the primaries, curves etc as normal.

    The free version of Fusion is included with Davinci Resolve, which combines editing, Fusion visual effects and motion graphics, color correction and Fairlight audio post, all in a single application.
