I'm starting to experiment with a GH4.
Right now I'm just interested in a 1080p output but a lot of doubts and questions arises...
On several articles and posts on the net I read that converting from 4K to 1080 results in a far "better" image and colors. IIRC I even read that I could get a 1080 4:2:2 clips from a 4K 4:2:0 clips. Mumble Mumble...
Could you elaborate on this and share your current workflow?
- If I'm not interested in crop i could create a 1080p project and throw 4K clips at it.
- I could create a 4K project, eventually take advantage of some crop and finally export everything at 1080p.
I made some test with the two above scenarios and frankly I couldn't find substantial differences between the two. I use Edius so I have no transcoding. I just edit directly the original 4K clips as usual. Of course the 4K project is slower than the 1080p one.
Thank you in advance
