  1.     Thank you so much for your insightful response to my question.  I honestly thought I wouldn't get too much info almost two months after my original post.   Based on your comments, Cineform Raw seems like a very useful editing codec for Raw shooting.  I had basically given up on the idea of using it, but I will reconsider it now.   One major obstacle I had run into a couple of months ago came from GoPro themselves, when they told me that GoPro studio for Mac didn't have native support for raw transcoding.     I will check in with them again no
  2.     Well, Nigel, I am considering Cineform for the first time because of the fact that it does offer the possibility of a raw, uncompressed editing codec, which is not possible through ProRes.   After all, why go though all the money and hassle of shooting Canon Raw to then compress the file downwards anyway if, in fact, there is the ability not to.   By using Cineform in a raw format while editing, I could theoretically avoid having to make permanent color grading decisions until after the complete edit is done, thus allowing me greater flexibility creatively.  
  3. Hello, Everyone.   I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now wondering what kind of real world computer performance in necessary in order to edit Raw video?   I have a Mac Pro (2009) with 16gb RAM and four internal HDs (500GB for OS and three 2TB for storage).   Until now I've only edited ProRes in Final Cut 7 on my machine, and I've never had a performance problem.  Moving into Raw shooting, however, I wondering if this will change my computer performance n
  4. Hello, Everyone.   I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now considering using Cineform as an editing codec in Final Cut 7.   Up until now I have only work with ProRes, but I have read excellent things about Cineform, so I wanted to ask others what they feel about it as an editing codec.   Does cineform work well in Final Cut 7?   Does cineform require more computer performance in order to edit with?  More RAM?  RAID?  Or would a RAID setup
  5. Hello, Everyone.   I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now wondering how much data storage and backup will be necessary for larger files.   With estimated calculations of Raw footage being about 7GB per minute, I wanted to ask others who are shooting Raw how much storage space are you finding you need?   Terabytes seem like they would get chewed up quite quickly, so how many are people working with?  4TB?  16TB?  32TB?  And for what size pro
