Hi, all. Tomorrow I'm going to be rendering a film in 2k resolution for the first time. It was shot on Red & I graded direct from the r3d files. I was wondering what you people recommend I render to--my Lite version of Resolve shows me DPX, Cineon, Tiff, EXR, QuickTime & MXF. I'll be taking the film to another facility to render (unless I luck into a dongle for the full Resolve, which would be nice). The catch is the film is going back into Final Cut 7 so the editor can do some trims here and there before they deliver it. Can I render in 2k resolution QuickTime, or does such a thing not even exist, as I suspect is the case? What is the next best thing for something that'll be used in Final Cut a bit? And, based on that, will 1.5 terabytes be enough space?
Generally Films get rendered out as DPX files in 2k.
I have in the past though rendered films as Rec 709 ProRes 4444. This was useful as the I knew the director would want to tinker with the edit after the grade. Both these options will convert to DCP fine.
