Can you guys add RED .r3d file ingest please?

Post by puka »

Please describe what you would like to see added to HandBrake:

Could you add RED Camera's ( .r3d file support please?

Why would you like to see this added:

There are not many applications that can ingest this beautiful file format. This file format can handle camera captures up to 8k resolutions. If you add this file format support, your program would be used by thousands of RED camera users world-wide.

Also, if you can somehow add something like :Matroska: or anything else that could output 8k video files, that would be the icing of the cake! No one else had done it so far. You guys will be the best!

What version of HandBrake are you currently running:

Ver: 1.0.7 (64 bit)

What operating system and version and you currently running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14):

Windows 10 (64 bit)

Thanks in advance,

r3d is the file extension for a format called redcode. redcode is proprietary, although older versions were reverse engineered a while back because they were really just jpeg2000. But newer versions are scrambled and so far have not been reverse engineered. Until someone does this, support is impossible.
