4k in color to FC???
on Aug 16, 2010 at 6:46:56 pm

Hi all

I am very new to Red, and recently I just finish a work, however, I have some questions at the last stage of my post production. Hope you guys will give me some ideas.

I did all grading in color linked with original raw 4k clips, and I rendered out in 4k as well.
however, when i send back to FCP, I notice that i have a new sequence with 4k resolution and my earlier rendered files all in 200% scale, the 4k is not automatically resized to 2k (as FC only support 2k)

my question is: is this normal?
if so, will I get a better quality to manually scale the 4k down in FC rather than render a 2k in color???

many thanks for help

I would tend to think that setting up a 2K project in Color and scaling the 4K files down there would be better than having FCP scale it down.
