Just had a strange request. A director wants all his R3D files transcoded to .avi files so he can edit on a PC. I have never had a request like this in all my years. I have converted finished projects for viewing to .avi but never dailies. I honestly don't think .avi files support smpte time code or any of the metadata from the R3D files. 
Any engineers know a solution for editing on a PC and preserving the vital metadata? BTW he is using a program called Pinnacle Studio. I never heard of it. Googled it and it looks like a consumer program. I'll bet he won't be able to even give me an EDL with this.
