    Finishing export of 4K iPhone 11 Pro Footage - What Resolution?

     

    I shot 4K 24 frame on an iPhone 11 Pro. 

    AMA linked and transcoded to DNxHR SQ

    Cut the film. It's a short film - 14 minutes long.

    Relinked back to source AMA.

    Now I need to kick out a final file that will go to Adobe Media Encoder and then to an online streaming platform like Vimeo or YouTube. Also might burn it to media, but right now that's not the plan.

    The question:

    Should I do uncompressed DNxHR 8-bit out, and let Adobe Media Encoder do all of the compressing, or should I do DNxHR HQX out and then feed that into Adobe Media Encoder?

    I know, it's just iPhone 4K, but technically it's 8-bit stuff, and I just don't want to lose quality that I don't have to.

    Thank you!

    Do a short test with say 30 secs of content. But I'm I suspect even the DNxHr SQ content will look the same as anything else you export.

    No need to go to HQx as thats 10 bit which you don't have DNxHR HQ will be more than enough.

    Check the DNx exports then compress them and chekc the compressed versions.

    Oh thanks! I didn't realize DNxHR HQX was 10-bit! Helps a lot. And yeah, test makes sense.
