3.2K ProRes VS 2.8k RAW for 4K delivery

Fri Feb 01, 2019 10:07 pm


Does anyone have any experience comparing the final 4K output of Arri Alexa 3.2K ProRes vs 2.8K RAW for a UHD delivery?

You would naturally think more pixels is better, but the additional color info and dedayer process in post may win out for RAW.


Thank you...

Dear Brian,

depends on the money you can spend in post (nore data and additional processing) and if there's the time to do a proper grade.
If not :I guess you get more out of the 3.2K Apple ProRes.
