Not sure if Michael Cioni reads along here, but one thing I wonder:

If the final frame is a 3600x1500 pixel crop from the source footage, do they blow up to achieve the 4096x1716 for DCP?

I'm sure most of the theaters showing the movie will show it in 2k (or worse: film) so nothing lost, but general consensus seems that a Bayer image's theoretical resolution maxes out at around 80% of the pixel count (which would put the 3600 down to below 3k)... So the 4k DI would be more of a 3k-ish image blown up to 4k.

Not trying to be pedantic here, just would be interested to hear Michael's point of view on this.
