Created for use with RED ONE®, EPIC® and SCARLET® professional cameras, the REDTools App is a convenient, multipurpose toolkit designed for on-set use by digital imaging technicians and camera operators, and as a learning tool for camera enthusiasts. It features six tools that can assist with:
- Visualizing crop factors and lens focal length
- Estimating maximum recording time based on storage space and project settings
- Identifying safe flicker-free frame rate and shutter speed combinations under pulsed lighting
- Calculating how lens settings affect depth of field
- Seeing how project settings and ND filters influence exposure
- Finding a suggested panning rate to minimize judder and strobing
Each is customizable based on RED sensor and camera type. Standard film formats are also included for comparison.
"Pro Filmmaker Apps" is a curated database that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of hundreds of mobile, tablet, watch, and desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals. Originally on FWDlabs.com — now also at ProFilmmakerApps.com.
"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."FILMCAST
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the [Pro Filmmaker Apps]. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."Directors Notes
