If I am scanning photos that I might crop, should I scan them in something larger than 3800x3800?

Because of this forum, I know that anything larger than 4000x4000 can drive FCP crazy.

I'm scanning photos that I might crop.

Given the fact I might crop them, does it make sense to scan at more than 4000x4000? My reasoning is that if I crop it, this way I can still have it at the maximal pixel size to have a high quality image.

I'm about to scan a ton of stuff from an archive. I got one chance with the slides and photos and I wanna make sure I do it right!

Well, scan them how you want. Just if you crop, crop and save as new files. FCP will choke on any still imported that's over 4000 pixels...even if you zoom into a small section. 3800 pixels should be just fine, however...you can zoom in pretty far on something that high.
