    MC7, RED Epic Workflow

    Just upgraded from MC6 to 7.  On a shoot this week using a RED Epic.  Can someone please help me with the RED Workflow in MC7 Interplay.   I heard tale of lots of improvements.  I have been trying to research all night but there is no clear workflow.  I am editing food commercials.  I need to be able to do an offline at 1080 using DNX36 or something small and then up res to the 4K at DNX220 for beauty clean up and color.  Just an fyi, I color correct in Symphany.  Any help or links would be appreciated.

    You can't do any finishing in Media Composer or Symphony in anything higher than HD (1080)

    DNX220 isn't 4K.

    So you will likley be looking at a HD conform and then taking your sequence to something like Resolve.

    It's possible to work with the Red footage direct in Avid and then send an AAF or an AAF linked to AVid media to Resolve and then have Resolve link back to the Red source files.

    If you aren't going to do the 4K finishing yourself then I'd get in touch with the Post house dealing with that and make sure your workflow is correct.

    Grading for 4K if it's for DCP won;t be the samer as grading for TV using Symphony.

    Thank you for the fast response.  I understand that DNX220 is not 4K and that one is a codec and the other is resolution.  I think I may have mis stated my question.  My end goal is to be able to make a close up a macro with food.  So I need the 4K resolution to punch in without the image degrading.  In the past I have always used Davinci and FCP7 for these commercial projects but I was intrigued at NAB by the demos of MC7 and how it worked with R3D 4K files.  That being said my final output will be for broadcast (1920X1080)
