              Why oh why are you using a red 'Cinema' camera for a youtube channel? By the time it hits youtube it's going to look like it was shot on a 4k panasonic gh5. Its like fitting a subaru turbo engine to a Moped....pointless!
              I see the same with other Gamers-turned-video-makers......'the higher the spec numbers and cost is better with youtube production?.....NO! You could easily shoot with a sony fs5 camera and nobody would know the difference! What a waste of a beautiful cinema camera. 😭😭😭

                            I think that when you enable the red rocket then it uses it as the primary gpu. So your quodro is then disabled.

                                                Does Red use software updates to software hamstring your editing equipment unless it detects it’s own hardware?

                                                              given REDs history of repackaging low tier products, claming they did it and putting a 50x markup, its probably some low tier card in a new hull, with 6800$ markup

                                                                    Check out this video on their mini MAG.

                                                                                      • Unwichtiger Nebencharakter

                                                                                        Nah, it's not. YouTube 4K Upload has a higher bit rate so even if you watch it on a 1080p display it has a higher image quality than if you selected 1080p. And a lot more people have 1440p and 2160p monitors than you might think. There is nothing more frustrating than having a 4K Monitor (1440p in my case) and being forced to watch videos in 1080p.

Just watched “Jinni.Tech” take apart some RED MINI-MAG SSDs.. and the guts inside were low grade entry level off the shelf ASATA cards. $200 parts that they sell for $2,500!! I bet if you take apart your Red Rocket, you will find some crap in there! Probably an i5 processor or components of a GX750!! RED has been called out for their rip off lies!! Do some follow up investigation!!
