First time DIT with ALEXA

Recommended Posts

I'm working a gig next week and it's the first time I'll be working DIT for the ALEXA. They're using the SxS to PRORES 4:4:4.

 

I've done DIT for the DSLRs, RED, EX3 and so forth. I'm familiar with SxS cards but is there a specific software to aid in downloading the ALEXA footage?

 

I also wanted to inquire about viewing the footage/proxys and possibly importing it into an editing program in case the DP wants to see any minor color/luminance correction. I don't have final cut. I have avid. Don't suppose there's a simple way to import the footage in avid, somehow is there?

 

Any information or advice is appreciated. Thanks guys.

Get DaVinic Resolve Lite and try and learn it in time. It's a little tricky getting started with the workflow, but when you get the hang of it you'll be able to freely (it's a free program) manipulate the LogC footage and render out TIFFs or MOVs, if your machine is fast enough.

 

No idea about Avid - I've poked around with it, but not to really utilize it.

What version of Avid do you have? The newer versions of MC should have AMA, which should give you a direct link to the footage?
