I have cs6 but dont have BM card and dont do what youre doing on set etc... but have worked on sets a lot and if youre trying to show producer, director, client ...stuff.... fast.... the best thing is just to do what works fastest... IMO you should just dump your clips into a sequence ( call it previews or something )... timeline and play the stuff so the program monitor is getting the and in turn going to your external monitor.. You can also ( at that point.. on timeline ) decide what to do with fast color correction type stuff ( looks etc ).... so they see something at least close to what they wanna see....
The source monitor has traditionally been a way to set in out points to sorta do a quick edit of what you wanna use... and drop that into timeline from there...it was never intended to be a program monitor...and thats what BM is also dealing with.
Thanks for the reply Able!
It is not for set, it is in the edit suite.
I always have clients on edits. And it is quite common to double click a clip in the bin to just play a take. Not just for creating in/outs.
It works sometimes, but not others. Never with RED footage, however.
This is a common practice, atleast at my studio.
I am a former FCP user, so it threw me off a bit.
I feel like Premiere "wow's" me with some things, then disappoints with others.
I appreciate your help!
yeah, stuff is weird..I wish I had the BM stuff you have.. would be cool. Plus theres no limit to more stuff I wish I had...sorry I wasnt more help... but at least you know you're not alone in the universe of adobe forum...
I know I'm saying this with no clue what I'm talking about... but a couple years ago I tested a red camera with ( yes, its true ) CS3 on a 32 bit mousey computer.
To do it I had to go through redcine X ( the first version of that program from red )... and make the stuff off the card from red ( 2k limit on card ) into a mov wrapper .. in other words I had to downscale to SD in redcine X from 2k JUST to get the stuff into my mouse computer with CS3....
I kinda followed developments the last couple years with alexa and red and my impression is that the redcine x and arri raw stuff is always getting updated..
sooooo, do you have the latest plug in or whatever cs6 uses for the red now ??? I have no clue.. dont use it ....but if it works sometimes and not other times.. your double click from bins... maybe check that out.. ?? good luck !
