Canon R5 workflow for video

Hi all,

I need some advice about what is the best workflow (quickest, simple) for using while in a trip to review clips from the R5 (8K RAW and RAW Light, 4K).

I'm using Macs (iMac 27" with High Sierra) and MacBook Pro with Mojave.

I use the latest version of Cinema Raw Development (2.6.1).

Also latest R5 firmware 1.3.1

I can't find a way to just be able to achieve a smooth playback of clips recorded with the R5.

Cinema Raw Development only see 8K RAW (not Raw light) clips and playback is not smooth. Also I can't change the rendering size in the Macbook Pro. But in the iMac I can (both have the same version of CRD) but even at 1/4 playback is not smooth.

When I open the CRD a message appears saying "Sufficient memory cannot be allocated for development using the GPU. Will develop using the CPU".

Don't understand why this message appears since:



AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB

Macbook Pro:


Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB

Can someone share a solution, please?

Thank you

Canon EOS R5
