dcp @ 1:66
on Jan 27, 2017 at 2:55:00 pm

Hello,

I'm editing a film based on still photographs in 4K at a 1:66 ratio. My timeline is at 4096 x 2458 (square pixels). I've just learned that I'll need to provide a cinema DCP as the output. I've googled around and found some common formats for 4K DCP, the least wide of them being QuadHD 16:9 which is 1:77. I've never exported to DCP before and I'd like to know if it's a flexible format which would accept a 1:66 timeline or if I'm looking for trouble and should switch to 1:77 instead.

Thanks a lot.

P.S. Creative Cow webmaster : writing "dcp" correctly shouldn't be detected as being all-caps... :)

The specced flat (1.85:1) resolution for 4K DCPs is 3996x2160. You'll have to either crop it or scale it to fill that resolution. UHD 3840x2160 is not in the DCI specification but it is DCI compliant.

Thank you. I'm not sure I understand the difference between being compliant and being in the specs. Do you mean that the resolutions listed here are not necessarily supported by all projectors?

EDIT: By "here" I mean this: http://blog.chameleondg.com/post/111891072017/resolution-aspect-ratio-cheat...
