Red One + Green Screen

Hi everyone,

I am just about to start the editing of a music video shot on Red one. I am using Cineform as my main source for editing.

I tried using the R2CF scripts however I am not sure if I should use the Red Profile (by adding -dR to the script) or use another one for the green screen work.

The issue is that my green looks very washed out in comparison with what we had on the shooting.

What is the best approach?
Convert all R3D files using the Red Profile OR
Use the default R2CF script and later when doing the keying add a profile. I will use After Effects for the post-production (i.e Green Key).

Thanks
Simon

The script default to a film style workflow for grading and keying, if you want a video style WYSIWYG, and you are shooting Redcode then the -dR switch might be best. Of course you don't need to reconvert your footage, just load it into First Light and set the output curves as needed.

Hi David,
Thanks for the quick reply. What is WYSIWYG?

It's not so much the footage in itself that bothers me, I can always CC later. I am afraid I might not be able to key the green properly since it doesn't look green anymore!
