At the Bench: RED GEMINI Dual Recording Workflow

RED's DSMC2 cameras are able to record .R3D RAW files and ProRes files simultaneously. Both recordings are stored in the same folder, sharing the same metadata. The cameras also allow you to import 3D LUTs with the option of "baking" the LUT into the ProRes files. So, you could say the camera is generating "lite" dailies.

Using a GEMINI 5K and Adobe Premiere, I show how you can edit the ProRes files as proxies for the RAW files. Once my simple edit is done, I export an EDL file and use it to link automatically to the .R3D files in DaVinci Resolve. Be sure to check out the video above for all the details.
