Content creators can edit 8K video in real time with new NVIDIA RTX-powered REDCODE RAW SDK.

Nvidia officially announced the collaboration with the famous digital photography company RED, making 8K film editing a reality. In the article, NVIDIA introduced REDCODE RAW SDK launched by RED due to NVIDIA CUDA.

The REDCODE RAW SDK supports applications that play 8K (8192×4320) video files recorded by RED’s Monstro 8K VV cameras at 24fps without caching or proxying. Most importantly, it can run on relatively inexpensive system devices, as well as NVIDIA’s consumer gaming graphics cards.

For users who don’t have an 8K projector, TV or monitor this 8K editing tool can come in handy. NVIDIA says that in the final 4K transmission format, image stabilization, panning and zooming will be more flexible and recompose the image without losing image quality. In addition, while high resolution provides more detail for tracking and keying reducing the resolution of video sampling will help reduce noise and maintain high quality.

Nvidia also said that this technology works equally well in commonly used formats such as 4K and 6K. Although NVIDIA and RED used the equipment in the demonstration, the HP Z4 workstation with a single CPU and the RED RAW 8K lens the $6,300 NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 graphics card. But according to NVIDIA, this tool can also enable 8K editing when paired with the relatively cheaper Titan RTX or RTX 2080 graphics card.

Nvidia official said that the released RED R3D SDK and REDCINE-X PRO software are scheduled to be launched at the end of the first quarter of 2019. The Beta version of this SDK has been provided to major third parties to support integration. According to foreign media reports, Colorfront has confirmed that it plans to integrate the SDK into its own system and companies such as Adobe are expected to support it soon.
