playing RED .r3d files


I’m trying to play RED .r3d files in CatDV and they don’t work even though I have the REDCODE codec installed.


To use RED files in CatDV you import the .mov reference movies that are automatically created (or use Red Cine X to create them yourself, if your camera doesn’t create them automatically). In order to play them you also need to change one of CatDV’s preference options: make sure you turn on “resolve data references” under Advanced Media Handling. By default this option is off (to avoid long delays if you accidentally open up a broken reference movie while QuickTime tries to search all your hard disks for the missing file) but if you really do want to play reference movies then you need to turn the option back on.
