Get to know the general layout of the RED user interface in Part 2 of the DSMC2 Camera Prep series—including how to read and adjust your camera using the REDPROTOUCH 7.0” LCD. Learn how to use RED Touch LCD monitors to dial in your camera settings: from frame rate and resolution to adjusting the built-in mics.
This is an advanced user video. Be sure to watch Parts 1 and 2 before viewing Part 3.
Take a deeper look at the customizable settings available on your RED camera. Part 3 in the DSMC2 Camera Prep series highlights how to adjust remote start/stop triggers, modify display guides to help see your frame, and assign or display keys on the LCD monitor. This video also covers fan control setting, steps to begin the black shading process, and how to calibrate your camera sensor.
This episode of REDTECH highlights the Pre-Record functionality on RED cameras. By activating Pre-Record, users can save a predetermined number of frames and effectively “travel back in time” to capture an unexpected moment that otherwise might have been missed without sacrificing storage space.
Once you’ve backed up your footage, the most efficient way to delete files is to format your REDMINI-MAG while connected to the camera. Watch as the REDTECH team explains the differences between a standard format and a secure format and how to perform each action through the camera’s menu.
RED’s new image processing pipeline unlocks the full potential of every pixel. IPP2 offers a completely overhauled workflow experience and encompasses all of the steps in the image capture process, from raw sensor data to final image output. This REDTECH gives an overview of the workflow philosophy for IPP2 and all of the visual enhancement options that come with it.
IPP2 enhancements include:
Better management of challenging colors
Improved shadow detail
Smoother highlight roll-off
More accurate mid-tone hues
An improved demosaicing algorithm to achieve higher detail at the same pixel resolution
RED cameras with the HELIUM 8K S35 sensor can now monitor and control our new image processing pipeline, IPP2, in-camera through a firmware update. Learn how to toggle between legacy and IPP2 modes; new CDL features to go along with standard white balance, ISO, and 3D LUTs; and how to access new in-camera image pipeline settings.
In this REDTECH, we explore RED’s new image processing pipeline in REDCINE-X PRO and its overall workflow. Learn how to toggle between legacy and IPP2 workflows as well as how to apply the new color controls. With IPP2, R3D files go through a new standardized, three-step process: Image Primary (look-independent controls, such as exposure and white balance), Image Grading (creative coloring decisions, including 3D LUTs and CDLs), and Image Output Transform (output-specific settings, such as SDR and HDR).
Learn to best utilize your camera on a gimbal with tips for setting up a compact rig, learning to balance the camera, pulling focus from an app and what tools allow for better concentration when shooting.
RED cameras are designed to be modular, accommodating most camera lenses using interchangeable lens mounts. Get tips on removing and attaching different mounts and what tools to use. Be sure to check before going out to shoot that the lens mount matches the lenses you will be using.
RED’s interchangeable Optical Low-Pass Filters (OLPFs) help cinematographers capture the perfect balance of light gathering and protective qualities in most shooting environments. Learn about the different filter applications and how to quickly switch and secure OLPFs in the RED camera.
