REDCINE-X PRO® is a professional-grade software application, designed specifically for transcoding and pre-editorial image manipulation of REDCODE® RAW (R3D®) footage. REDCINE-X PRO is a non-destructive application, enabling you to make image adjustments—while preserving the original RAW format. This gives you the ability to return to the original files at any time for transcoding, scaling, cropping, or correcting color.

REDCINE-X PRO converts selected RAW files to RGB color space using de-mosaicing and color matrix algorithms. Timecode, white balance, and other metadata is maintained during RAW to RGB conversion.
