4K workflow?


This is my 1st time I had the opportunity to work with 4K footage. I am confused about the workflow. The final edits will be at 1920 X 1080, so do I track in moch with the 4K footage and apply the tracking data to the 1920 footage? Or do I do my work in 4K and just send the finish product back as 4K?




Hi Lou,

If the final is 1920, why even work in 4K? You can convert the files to 1920 and use those.

Or, if you want to work in 4k, work in 4k in your tracks and comp, and convert to 2k for the final.

That’s going to depend on your preferences and your timeline. 4k takes a little bit more time to render and work with.
