    4K Project

    Hey All, I am working in an HD project, but I have a couple of shots fillmed in 4k. I really don't like using an ama link to bring in and work with 4k. So I thought I would open a 4k project, bring in the media as DNxHR, and then open the 4k bin up in the HD project. I should then be able to work with it, scale it, and so on.

    When I clicked on the new project button and clicked the drop down menu for 4k it gives me some options.

    My question is, what is the difference between 4k DCI Flat and 4k DCI Full? what does DCI even stand for?

    Ryguy...

    Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) is the dominant 4K standard. Digital Cinema Initiatives  is a joint venture of major motion picture studios, formed to establish a standard architecture for digital cinema systems.

    Read up on it here...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution

    it will provide the scoop on DCI ( flat cropped ) etc....

    DCI Flat means 1.85:1 (1998×1080 in 2K, 3996×2160 in 4K). DCI Full (full aperture) is 16:9 (2048x1080 in 2K, 4096x2160 in 4K). DCI Flat and DCI Scope are common aspect ratio's for digital cinema delivery. DCI Full exists, but is uncommon (most theaters do not have a preset for it). For TV, use UHD.

    Also: you can now AMA link to the file in your current project. When transcoding, you can choose to keep it at original frame rate and resolution. It eliminates all the years of workarounds in having to create a project with matching resoltion and/or frame rate and moving bins and clips around.

    Re: 4K Project

    For most users, UHD is probably your best option. It is compatible with all consumer TVs, most broadcast standards, and streaming services.

     

    DCI is often for cinema releases, archival copies, and certain higher-end TV productions.
