The RED KOMODO 6K cinema camera has a new 19.9MP S35 global shutter sensor that captures video in incredible detail and clarity. The KOMODO 6K is capable of recording 6K at 40fps, 5K at 50fps, 4K at 60fps, and 2K at 120fps. Not only does 6K look pristine, but 6K footage opens up many creative possibilities in post-production. The format can be broken down into two key options – R3D, or RED RAW files, and ProRes. Resolution seems very straightforward, but you need to know that the KOMODO will actually crop in on the sensor if you choose a lower resolution if you are shooting R3D.
"I just bought RED KOMODO 6K and tested 6K/40p vs 4K/60p. But the problem is that my KOMODO 6K videos wouldn’t play in Premiere Pro CC on Windows 10. After searching online and my multiple testing, some possible solutions turn up. Now I will share the methods to import and edit R3D videos in Premiere Pro CC flawlessly."
"Hi, there, I have a lot of 4K files recorded on a RED DIGITAL CINEMA KOMODO 6K camera. They are encoded with ProRes 422 codec in MOV wrapper. I want to open and edit the ProRes 422 footage in Vegas Pro 19 so that I can create my own home video. Unfortunately, the latest version of Vegas Pro doesn’t recognize RED KOMODO 6K 4K footage at all. I’ve been looking for a workflow for importing 4K ProRes clips to Vegas Pro since last two weeks, but there is no go. Can anyone advise what should I do to make Vegas Pro 19 accept RED KOMODO ProRes videos? Many thanks in advance!"
