Markers Grayed Out with RED .r3d Files!

May 20, 2012 6:00 PM

I have ingested a bunch of RED .r3d files, and the markers are all grayed out, and I can't use them.  I've tried everything, and can't get them to work at all. 

 

Before someone asks, yes, I left the .r3d's in their original folder structure...

 

Any ideas??

 

Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    RED is a media format Adobe does not yet have XMP metadata support for.  Without that support Prelude knows it cannot add markers. That is why the markers are greyed out. RED metadata support is in our product backlog for a future release.

     

    Regards,

    Michael

    An alternative is to transcode your R3D media to another codec, like ProRes, then you can add markers to the new media files.

    THIS is HORRIBLE news....i thought Adobe had a full R3d pipline setup already....hell, i've been waiting to use this on my next job....

    Is there ANY IDEA as to WHEN R3d support will come with Prelude? An entire ARMY of RED users out there that can use this....

     

    Thanks....and trascoding to anything when working on an all R3d project is basically a NON-WORKABLE solution. NO WAY!  don't have that kind of time at end of day when downloading data....

    As of 1.0.1, Prelude can no longer ingest nor play R3D footage at all.  ):

    I don't see what you're describing. Could you provide us with an example .r3d file that doesn't ingest or play for you?

    Happy to do so.   I'm unable to ingest R3D footage of any kind, so I have plenty from which to choose.  Can you give me a site to which I can transfer a file?

     

    Also, I'm not the only one seeing this issue as of 1.0.1.  Please see:

    Oh, and I am running this on Windows 7 64-bit.

     

    Thanks,

    Stivan

    Also, so that you don't duplicate effort, Wes Howell from Adobe has logged this as a bug.   Thanks.

    Wes, I'm with Stivan... it doesn't matter what .r3d files I try to import, they all fail.  Same reason... cannot import XMP file.

    GPB,

     

    Stivan777 and I corresponded via email and the problem was he had installed the 64-bit version of the RED importer where Prelude needs the 32-bit version. Can you try downloading and installing the 32-bit version? http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/redepic_importer.html

    This indeed sorted the issue.  Now we just need Prelude to have to ability to read/write RED metadata.  Is this planned?

     

    Thanks.

    Any update on the RED metadata writing issue?  Prelude might keep me from buy other DIT software if you fine folks at Adobe could make this work.

     

    Thanks,
