Installation Instructions for RED-ONE Build 32 v32.0.3 camera firmware.

NOTES:

  • This upgrade is fully contained in the folder “build_32_v32.0.3”
  • In that folder is a copy of this Read Me file and the folder named “upgrade”
  • The " upgrade " folder includes the camera firmware upgrade file “redone.su”
  • DO NOT rename this folder, the camera only opens a folder named “upgrade”
  • Do NOT decompress the “redone.su” file, the camera will perform that task.

1. Format a CF card using Build 20, 21, 30 or 31 (Build 20/21 used on Mysterium sensor based camera only)
2. Connect the CF card to your P.C or Macintosh via a CF card reader.
3. Copy the folder called " upgrade " onto the CF card.
4. Unmount the CF card from your computer (drag to the trash can).
5. Ensure your camera is powered down.
6. Insert the CF card into the CF card slot of your RED-ONE camera.
7. Power up the camera.
8. After booting up, the camera rear status display will report “New Firmware” and the RED-EVF or RED-LCD will report “A software update is available for your system”
9. Press the joystick to confirm, and the rear status display will report “Upgrading”
10. During the upgrade process, a blue progress bar will be visible on the RED-EVF or RED-LCD. This bar will continue for the duration of the upgrade, which is approximately five minutes.
11. At the end of the upgrade process, the rear status display will report “O.K. Cycle Power” The RED-LCD or RED-LCD will report " Upgrade complete. Power cycle the camera to continue. "
12. Power down the camera, wait five seconds, then power up the camera.
13. Verify that the camera rear status display and or monitors report back – PIN (value specific to camera) Build 32 Version 32.0.3
14. Installation is now complete.

Note: After the firmware upgrade, it is mandatory that you re-format a CF card and perform a BLACK SHADING calibration. At the end of Black Shading remember to power cycle the camera. Operation without performing a BLACK SHADING calibration after firmware updates or downgrades usually creates significant color errors.

Operation without performing a BLACK SHADING calibration after firmware updates or downgrades usually creates significant color errors.

Significant changes since Build 30 series firmware.

  • Resolution of 3k 16:9 codec error at high frame rate.
  • Increased reliability and capability of Master / Slave operation.
  • Support for hot plug of Master / Slave communication USB cable.
  • Indication of Master / Slave status in UI.
    • Note: Cameras will take up to 10 seconds after hot plug of USB cable to establish communication, during which time the UI will display a blinking “M” and “S” respectively on the Master and Slave camera. Once the communications link is established and verified the “M” and “S” icons will stop blinking. To reverse the Master / Slave relationship, reverse the USB cable physical connection.* Slave camera prevented from initiating a record operation. * Slave camera clip name forced to use Master camera’s I.D.
  • Addition of POSITION function to set Master camera as CENTER, LEFT or RIGHT.
    • Note: When Master is set to CENTER, Master and Slave clips are both labeled “C”, if Master is set to LEFT, Master clips are labeled “L” and Slave clips are labeled “R”, if Master is set to RIGHT, Master clips are labeled “R” and Slave clips are labeled “L”.
      • For example, If Master is LEFT and it’s camera I.D letter is B, the first clip recorded will be : Master : B001_L001_******.RDC Slave : B001_R001_******.RDC (where ****** are wildcard + day + date).
      • For example, If Master is RIGHT and it’s camera I.D letter is B, the first clip recorded will be : Master : B001_R001_******.RDC Slave : B001_L001_******.RDC (where ****** are wildcard + day + date).

    • Note: S-TINT, S-W.BAL and S-FLUT provide an offset for Slave camera TINT, W.BAL and FLUT relative to the common TINT, W.BAL and FLUT values programmed from the Master camera. This compensates for monitor path color differences between the transmitted and reflected light path camera when using an optical beam-splitter.

  • Common LOOK EXPORT and IMPORT for Master and Slave cameras.
    • Note: When in Master / Slave mode, only the Master requires an SD Card to be installed. Following an EXPORT command from the Master camera UI, the Master camera writes a .RLK file to its SD Card. Following an IMPORT command from the Master camera UI, the Master camera reads the sleeted .RLK file from its SD Card and transfers the LOOK parameters to the Slave camera.

      • To toggle between these, press both User Key 3 and User Key 4 on the front surface of the Bomb-EVF.
  • Transfer of DARK DETAIL parameter to EVF-MENU, and INTENSITY parameter to VIEWFINDER menu.
  • Support for RED-SSD Media of 64GB, 128GB, 256GB capacities.

RED ONE Firmware

Release Date: 08/05/2009
Version: 20.1.3

RED ONE Build 20 v20.1.3, Aug 5, 2009

Summary

Enhanced Color Matrix, with decreased Blue channel noise, especially under tungsten lighting, increased skin tone accuracy on RED-EVF, RED-LCD, and HD-SDI outputs, modified False Color meters for RAW, REC709 and REDspace views, modified Zebra 1 and 2 defaults, modified microphone level default, 48V Phantom Power maintained over power cycle, fixed ""audio codec error" and “green flash” on audio enabled clip play back from RED-DRIVE, fixed camera reboot on clip playback from RED-DRIVE, fixed camera reboot on communications error from S4/i lens data port, corrected Look Around area on HD-SDI and HDMI outputs for 4K ANA / 3K ANA / 2K ANA modes, changed USER KEY 4 to VIEW RAW, changed USER KEY 5 to COLOR.

WARNINGS: Read all instructions contained in the installation files before upgrading. Before upgrading to Build 20, you must have first upgraded to Build 16, 17, or 18. Once the RED ONE is upgraded to Build 20, you will NOT be able to roll back to Build 15 or earlier builds.

Exposure assist tools in this version of firmware have been updated as follows: Adjusted Sensor RAW meter highlight clip indication response, Adjusted black level response of RGB monitor path / RGB Histogram / HDMI / HD-SDI output(s), Corrected FALSE COLOR error in VIEW RAW mode, Re-calibration and simplification of FALSE COLOR overlay for RAW, REC709 and REDspace.

Notes:

  • After upgrading to Build 20, on-camera playback of media recorded by earlier builds may not be possible, nor can you add additional clips to digital media formatted under an earlier build. Ensure you reformat any digital media before shooting under Build 20.
  • Download the companion versions of RED Alert! (Version 20.1.6 or later) and REDCINE (Version 20.0.0 or later). TIFF, DPX and standalone QuickTime files rendered out of RED Alert! or REDCINE from Build 20 .R3D files will provide consistent color to the camera monitor ports.
  • The current version of RED QuickTime Codec and other post production tools will be compatible with Build 20 .R3D files and QuickTime Reference files, but these applications need to be updated before reflecting the new Color Science. If using these tools, note that the colors of the RED ONE monitor output, RED Alert! and REDCINE will not match up to these applications. Therefore you should perform an additional white balance prior to editing or other color processing.
  • Use of RED Alert! (Version 20.1.2 or later) and REDCINE (Version 20.0.0 or later) on pre-Build 20 camera firmware .R3D files can improve color purity and dynamic range and lower blue channel noise, however you should re-white balance prior to performing other color processing.

Note: False Color in REC 709 / REDSpace shows RGB monitor levels, and responds to ISO changes. When in these view modes you can verify RAW space sensor exposure using the Sensor RAW meter. False Color in RAW view mode shows RAW space sensor exposure and matches the Sensor RAW meter. At ISO 320, RAW / REC 709 / REDspace display of 18% Grey (Green) can be considered equivalent.

False Colors provide the following information:

  • Purple – Minimum Exposure
  • Teal – 3 stops under reference
