Until now the support is working in Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Media Encoder. All CS5. You can even mix material of RED ONE and RED EPIC in the same timeline and includes Rocket support.

In this article Andrew Lesnie reveals The Hobbit 3D cinematography set up.  As we posted some days ago, the production of the Hobbit had started on on March 20 in Wellington’s Stone Street Studios and on location in New Zealand.

First, the short facts:

The Hobbit is:

  • being shot on 30 RED EPIC cameras;
  • using Zeiss Ultra Primes, Master Primes and Optimo zoom lenses;
  • shooting at 47.96 frames per second;
  • using 3ality Digital rigs.

Also Jim Jannard of RED has previously revealed that the production would use its new, smaller EPIC digital cameras, which can shoot at 5K resolution and up to 120 frames per second.

RED EPIC delay

Due to the catastrophe in Japan RED can’t deliver all EPIC cameras on time.

Here’s what Jim Jannard wrote on REDUSER.NET forum:

After talking with our group, and after exhaustive work on supply chain issues… there are 18 parts (out of 18,000) of EPIC-X that come from Japan. More specifically… northern Japan factories. If you are not brain dead and have been watching the news, you will understand that this is bad news.

We are late shipping EPIC for many reason up to now… mostly due to us. We have made changes, had no idea how difficult this project was… yada, yada. Now that we know what we are doing and are ready to rock, including building a complete production line in Irvine… this happens.

Ugh…

While we have a handful of production parts for EPIC-X and will deliver them before NAB as promised, we are now looking at how to make more EPIC-Ms available to EPIC-X customers because there will be a delay in EPIC-X production due to the “Japan-effect”.

No one is more disappointed than me… I am spending a fortune in blood pressure medication. Really.

We still feel that we can deliver all EPIC-X orders by summer’s end but it will be “back-end” weighted. April and May will be “light”.

Life is short. Put yourself in a position doing what you were meant to do. Expect curveballs. They come. Do your best and take the consequences. I guess I am talking to myself…

I promised to be transparent. Mostly that is a good thing. Tonight I am depressed. But always willing to tell you the straight scoop.
