Davinci 2k for stills?
on Mar 16, 2006 at 6:19:17 am

I am workin out various workflows for a doc about a famous photographer, and we have access to some large format negatives. Looking at these negs in footage in the telecine sessions, my colorist has brought up the idea of scanning the negs into large dpx files and doing a density grade with the davinci 2k or 4k. OUr film is being edited in dvcpro HD. The thought is we could scan them do a great density grade, ostensibly better than scanning still prints and photoshopping the density grade, and then downconvert them to our HD format. My only reservation for this workflow idea is how MOCO could fit into the process. But it seems that this could yield better results than working with existing prints. Any thoughts/opinions on this?
thanks,
fx

my guess is that he/she is thinking that supplying you with larger than HD sized images will give you more room to crop, zoom, etc the image. other than that not sure what MOCO is.
