RED is pleased to announce that the release version of our new image processing pipeline (IPP2) is available for immediate download. IPP2 offers a completely overhauled workflow experience, from image capture through post production. IPP2 enhancements include:
- Better management of challenging colors
- Smoother highlight roll-off
- Improved shadow detail
- More accurate mid-tone hues
- An improved demosaicing algorithm to achieve higher detail at the same pixel resolution
- Simpler and more intuitive workflow
- A workflow designed for HDR from the ground up
- Industry-standard naming
- Standardized color space and gamma
RED cameras with the HELIUM 8K S35 and MONSTRO 8K VV sensor can now monitor and control the new image pipeline in-camera, while all other camera owners will benefit from the new image pipeline in post through the latest REDCINE-X PRO upgrade. Individuals who prefer RED's original color science workflow have the option to toggle between IPP2 and the legacy workflow both in-camera as well as in REDCINE-X PRO.
Visit RED's Downloads page to get the latest DSMC2 camera firmware and REDCINE-X PRO software to take advantage of IPP2. For more information about all of the updates included in IPP2, please reference the IPP2: Image Pipeline Stages, ISO Recalibration for HELIUM, and REDWideGamutRGB and Log3G10 white papers.
