Summary: Using an S35mm image plane, the Red One displays a natural depth of field from 2K to over 4K resolutions, convert Red One camcorder recorded 4K RAW files to Davinci Resolve really a hard issue, this article will give you the solution.
Can anyone give me advice on what will effectively edit 4K (like processor wise and memory wise and graphics card wise., etc?) Maybe the current iMac will do it. I’m not sure. Maybe a low level version of the new Mac Pro will do it, I’m not sure. I’m an artist, not a technician.
Before solved the problem, I would give some information about Red One.
The first Red Ones were outfitted with the 12 megapixel Mysterium sensor, capable of capturing up to 120 frames per second at 2K resolution and 30 frames per second at 4K resolution
The second generation, Red One Mysterium-X has a 14 megapixel Mysterium-X sensor. It captures up to 120 frames per second at 2K resolution and up to 30 frames per second at 4K resolution. With the upgraded sensor, the Red One Mysterium-X offers more dynamic range, higher sensitivity and enhanced color management tools than the Red One Mysterium.
