hello to all with a question about Cinema-Production
on Jul 29, 2011 at 8:44:41 am

hi to all and I am very glad to have found this great forum!
looking forward to a lot of constructive and creative exchange!

I am a freelance graphic designer who is in the business for quite some time but finally discovered a new&ultimate passion: Motion Graphics!
so i am rather new to the subject but into it with all my heart and sweat ; )

i got a great opportunity to create an ad that will be shown in cinema theater's and would like to get some information before i get started:

-about the format?
4K - 4096px horizontal x 2160px vertical - 24 fps
-> is this the right format to start the project (or could 2K do the job without loosing to much quality)?

-about the codec?
which codec-settings (i use "compressor") would i need to export the final project (video & audio)?

BIG thanks in advance for any input!

anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new

Reto,
Welcome to the forum. I have created a 2k spot that runs after the trailers at the Megplex Theaters. One of the best theater chains ever in my opinion. Anyways, take a look at this 2D images in a 3D environment photo move. And by the way, it is really fun to see your work on a huge screen.

As for your question: "or could 2K do the job without loosing to much quality." Avatar was shot 1920x1080. I thought it looked amazing on the iMax screen and so did a lot of other people. Also, I would check with the theater that it is running in and see what they can take and decide from there.

As for the other question, "which codec-settings (i use "compressor") would i need to export the final project (video & audio)?" For a digital projector at a theater you need to make your movie a DCP which stands for Digital Cinema Package. Compressor can't do that. Best of luck.
