    Avid DS currently does not capture or import RED material directly.  You have to use a file conversion workflow, and some good examples are posted on the publicly owned DSWiki web site (

    Not doubting you have a good reason to capture directly from camera but:

    The output of the camera if using the 1080p playback mode (not the default mode) does not show the whole picture. It is a centre cut that matches 4xHD.

    The debayer quality is not what you can achieve with the many easy methods availble. Red see it as a HQ video tap. I suggest (unless you have a reason I can't imagine) you render to DPX or DNxHD 185x.

    kind regards
