Epic Dragon - Recording formats. The main recording format in Red cameras is the REDCODE. This file extension effectively encodes the digital sensor measurements of the camera itself, maximizing post-production capabilities. The system designed by RED stores each color channel in the sensor separately, which allows a tremendous amount of information to be modified later. However, as expected, this kind of file so rich in information is also tremendously heavy in terms of storage, so the Epic DRAGON camera allows you to apply compression to the file that varies between 2: 1 and 22: 1, allowing to choose the precise balance between quality and file weight. Among the other formats offered by the Epic Dragon, it also gives the possibility to roll in RAW from 12 to 16 bits. Also in anamorphic format (1.3x and 2x) in any of the available resolutions.
Depending on the image format you choose, the Epic Dragon hire Camera provides different maximum frame rates:
  • 100fps at full resolution 6K, 2.4: 1
  • 120fps at resolutions of 5K, 2.4: 1, and 96fps 5K, Full Frame
  • 150fps at resolutions of 4K, 2.4: 1
  • 200fps at 3K resolutions, 2.4: 1
  • Maximum frame rate from 300fps to 2K, 2.4: 1

In terms of basic reproduction speeds of the project, it allows choosing several predetermined frame rates: 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 47.98, 50, 59.94, and 60fps (regardless of the chosen resolution).

Epic hire camera workflow. RED recommends the use of REDCINE X-PRO software when working with REDCODE format. This software package contains a series of programs designed to transcode and edit the image recorded in REDCODE RAW. Apart from transcoding, it allows the image to be manipulated from the point of view of scaling, re-framing or color correction while saving the RAW file intact, without suffering file loss.
