RED’s Easier 8K Workflow with Realtime GPU Decode and New REDCINE-X Pro

RED digital cinema announced the release of SDK for NVIDIA CUDA R3D decoding as well as new version of the REDCINE-X for Windows. These new updates should significantly improve 8K real-time playback and editing by utilising the power of GPU. The new version of REDCINE-X PRO (for Windows) will decode and debayer 8K RED RAW footage much faster. New Solutions for 8K Workflow. Source: RED Back in August 2018 NVIDIA announced their newly developed GPU architecture called Turing and new NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphic cards. NVIDIA worked closely with RED to optimize and test the results with the REDCODE RAW file format. The new Quadro RTX GPUs with Turing architecture promised editing and playing back 8K footage in full resolution, in real time. Now RED made an announcement in their unique way when Jarred Land posted a short comment on REDuser.net: He announced that RED is releasing the SDK (software development kit) for NVIDIA CUDA R3D decode as well as V. 51.0.47404 of REDCINE-X for Windows. What does this mean? To explain the updates, RED also released a short YouTube video: Generally, the idea behind this whole cooperation is to move the decoding from the CPU to the GPU, thus providing a real-time 8K workflow. The release of the SDK for NVIDIA CUDA R3D decode means that the improved GPU acceleration for R3D RAW files can now be implemented into various applications. It is therefore only a question of time when this technology will be implemented into NLEs like Adobe...
