I have to cut some stuff together which includes stuff that's been shot on various Red cameras. Is there some straightforward commandline tool I can use to batch process it all into something more normal?
I've no interest in getting bogged down in camera-specific workflows for this, nor do I want to deal with 8K material on a timeline.
Ffmpeg was able to do it at one point and could have gone directly R3D to ProRes .mov, which would be great, but of course Red started encrypting their files specifically to prevent this from being done. I hate to take this platform to complain, but good grief: something that's trying to be a professional digital cinema camera that produces deliberately-obfuscated data? Madness. I try to avoid all things Red, so I've almost no experience dealing with it.
Low-con HD ProRes quicktimes would be fine.
