You know they used to hang people for saying less years ago
I don't know much about all this but the big question on my mind is, why change something that works perfectly fine in the first place?
Like the old saying goes, If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
The big problem with Red is that there is not enough info to teach users especially new users about it & I doubt there will be in the near future!
When you talk Lightworks all the heavy hitters jump in with knowledgeable suggestions & tried & true methods that work & this is important.
Talk Red & it's as if you have got the plague or something because there is no or little info available.
For this reason I am thinking of using Lightworks because the database in experienced users heads is huge & we can all learn from this, to learn from Red we have to put in thousands & thousands of hours to get anywhere near the surface of the Lightworks database.
One thing I see with Red that I don't like is that it has that fake appearance about it with renderings, I'm not talking about my bodgey attempts but from looking at what others have achieved so far.
On the Red site there is an engine & transmission & it looks like plastic, if the designers of Red can't make things look real what chance do we have really?
Now have a look at some of the Lightworks renderings, sometimes I think they must cheat & take a picture they are that good!
If Red is so good, why aren't the experienced users all over it like a rash, obviously they don't see the light regarding this & prefer something that works & works well.
What is actually the BEST?
Why not run a SERIOUS competition on this forum, Red vs Lightworks where everyone can submit there renderings to actually see what is the best & then IMSI can see which way they should go FOR THE USER!.
One voice will never change the world but many will.
