«So to answer a question and clear up a misconception - REDCINE is an application that runs on a workstation (for example an Intel Mac) and emulates what we do in real time in camera hardware when we tell it to record an HD format such as 1080p / 24. That is it converts Bayer pattern data to RGB, applies a gamma, color space and white balance correction to the data, scales it to 2K, crops it to 1080p, converts it to 4:2:2 and encodes it.
Think of these as complimentary paths. If you know you want 720p or 1080p output you can go direcly there by doing all the processing in camera and recording a compressed 1080p image using REDCODE 4:2:2. Or you could shoot 4K RAW using REDCODE RAW and bring that data set through REDCINE. Yes its a bit slower in post to do that, but the advantge is your initial recording is in 4K, not 1080p, which gives you more options for your footage - for example a 4K DCI, a super quality 35mm film out plus your 1080p HDTV deliverable, as well as a 4K RAW source footage archive.
The intent is to provide two easy to use on-board recording workflows, one emulating an existing compressed HD worflow, the other emulating a digital film negative / DI workflow.»
