Hello everybody,

I´m going to test for the first time in a few hours the RED One, am really curious...

Could someone help me answering a few questions...?

I´m shooting in a few weeks a commercial which is not for TV, but for cinemas with digital projection, so quality is essential.....

The client requests a 1:2.35 aspect ratio. Most of it will be shot at standard speed, but there are at least 5 shots which require slow-motion...

What are the best settings, in terms of quality, to achieve this?

Thanks a lot.....

Depending on how slow you need it, I would actually suggest shooting 3k at 60fps. It cuts better when looking at it on my 24" LCD. Of course, everything I've seen on big 1080 TV's, the 4k and 2k cuts pretty seamless. As for 2.35, I believe there is guide you can turn on in the camera for framing. I would just frame accordingly and crop it in post (gives you wiggle room too.)

If you have to shoot faster than 60 fps, 2K. Since you're projecting it use REDCODE 36, not 28. Shoot 23.98 as opposed to 24. Stay in REDLOG once you're in REDCINE or RED ALERT!.

Have a fun shoot.
