Final Output of ProRes 4444

So I already put this in the Final Cut forum, but got no reply, hopefully you guys can help me out.

So I am at the end of an edited project, and I was hoping for some help with my final delivery. I ingested 4K Redcode .R3D files, transcoded to 2K ProRes 4444 files. I sent these files to Color and now that our colorist is finished, he sent me the Color file back. Our producer wants the final delivery in 2K and to be better then ProRes. Our delivery is going to be both a 35mm film print (which I am making a DPX file for) and a digital file. What is the best path for the digital file?

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean? 2K DPX out of Color is fine for a film output- especially if the film recording lab gives you their LUT. Was there something else you were thinking?

Yes, the idea is the producer wants to be prepared to also show the file through digital projectors. I believe DPX files are only for film prints. So what would be the best file type for digital delivery?

Thanks a ton for the help.

You mean in addition to the digital DPX files you are delivering for the film print? I'd typically go ProRes HQ or 10-bit Uncompressed.

[John Bauwens] "Our producer wants the final delivery in 2K and to be better then ProRes."

Go uncompressed.. depending on the length of the project it could take you a while to export but it will be well worth it.
