Well haven't there been reports of problems with Red footage?

Yes, but they can be cured by switching to Metal.

FWIU, with a significant performance hit, but I'm on a PC so I don't know for sure.

Yes, there is a performance hit, but BM is looking into this bug for sure.

OTOH, if you have lots of R3Ds, you may want to wait a while.

Also, FWIU, the bug may be more of an issue with the Red SDK than with Resolve itself, FWIW.
