How to prep R3D clips for “flat file” color-correction exports (VIDEO)

One of my favorite features of DaVinci Resolve is the “EDL Preconform” tool, which lets you chop up a self-contained movie at the correct edit points using an EDL file. This is a big timesaver when working with remote clients, because they can just send you a ProRes 4444 master file of the locked cut, instead of having to collect and deliver all of the original source media to you.

However, when working with an EDL Preconform workflow, you need to take special care of camera raw clips, like R3D files from the RED camera. In this video, I explain how to prepare R3D clips in Premiere for a proper EDL Preconform export.
