The RED pathway: Step Three

As an overview for the RED/FCP/AE workflow I’ve narrowed it down to 9 steps that can get you in, out, and rendering.

1. Log/Transfer RED footage2. Edit 3. Export using XML document 4. Conform using ClipFinder 5. Import back into FCP as 4K footage 6. From here you can either send to Color then render or export using XML (Version 1) 7. Drop XML (Version 1) into BasicFCProAE (This makes a JSX file) 8. Run JSX as a script in AE 9. Animate, render and enjoy!

There is also some new software that takes some time out of the equation: Boris XML Transfer, this will send your FCP timeline into AE much like it would for Color.
