Hey guys, so I shot all the footage for my thesis this last weekend using a RED. It is going to be a spec commercial and some shots have vfx and some don't. I transcoded all the .r3d's to MXF's to work in avid for offline. I'm still sorting through shots and creating my subclips...still not near radio edit.
Final delivery will be rec 709, not planning on doing film out.
Question is: before transcoding all .r3d's into mxf's for offline...should I have exported the vfx shots into half float linear exr's for use in vfx and transcode those exr's into mxf's for offline? Or is it ok I'f I just stick to the way I'm working and switch the .r3d for whatever image sequence I export from nuke as long as it has the same name as the original .r3d?
The EDL will still work since it just looks at the name of the file and timecode data. (exr's can store timecode data right?)
