Hello to All!
I will be shooting an extremely low budget feature on the Arri Alexa in the LOG C format and would like to determine the most efficient and inexpensive way to have playback footage and also make dailies with an established "look".
This is my plan as off now; if i'm leaving anything out or i haven't considered something please point it out:
1. Download the Arri Look Creator for my computer.
2. Feed the software a couple of LOG C generated images from the camera.
3. Create Looks on the ALC. Save them and Load them into the Camera
4. Connect an AJA Key Pro-Mini to my camera and feed it the SDI signal with the "look" on it. The Aja box would also serve as a bridge for video village, so they can also see the footage with the look.
5. Shoot and record on the SxS cards in the LOG C format.

Would this work?
Would the footage recorded by the Aja box be a instant "proxy" creator for my editors offline cut? Would the quality be enough for everyone in production to review their work and see a close interpretation of what the finished product will be eventually.
Any thoughts, ideas or advice would be incredibly appreciated.

Hello.
I am also interested in knowing more about this topic...
Have you had a chance to test this workflow yet?

Does the kipro deliver a rec709 image suitable for offline editing?
Can one also have the kipro create DNxHD 36 for editing in Avid?

Will there be any issues when onlining?
