I have verified this problem. After Effects CS6, Premiere Pro CS6, and Adobe Media Encoder CS6 experience problems with RED .r3d files on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
More specifically, the ImporterREDServer process used by these applications is failing to launch or crashing. You may be able to import and use some .r3d files for a short time, but once the ImporterREDServer process crashes, frames from imported files won't be returned, and importing new files will result in error messages.
We are investigating the problem.
This problem does not occur in the CC or CC 2014 versions of After Effects, Premiere Pro, or Adobe Media Encoder on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. If you do not have access to these versions, my suggestion for workarounds are to transcode the .r3d files to a different format (ex., QuickTime with ProRes or other high quality intermediate codec) or roll back to Mac OS X 10.9.
is there any improvement yet? I am having exactly the same issue.
Have there been any updates regarding Yosemite not being able to read R3d files
That problem only affects CS6 applications. There have been no CS6 updates lately.
Hello, still having the issues listed above. Is there going to be any update that will fix it?
This is pretty bad. Are their plans to update CS6 to correct this issue? Many of us were surprised to find out that our .R3D files were no longer working in Premiere and purchased CS6 with the intent of being able to work with these files natively. I know that CC is the newest version, but those of us who purchased CS6 and were sold on the capability of being able to edit .R3D files deserve to have this issue corrected. Thank you.
