Answers given in this thread confirm the
Experience we have here regarding 4k delivery.
There is not that we know a satisfactory answer
At the present time.
It sort of confirm a fact that I always thought:
4k has been above all a marketing claim to sell
More massively a product that currently aint
Manageable in all the chain. It is only usefull for
Reframing, and that belongs to the artistic aspect,
And for "gaining reso" because of the downsampling
And that belongs to the cosmetic aspect.
Then, it seems that there is a science of conforming.
Some people know, others do not. Because I sometimes
See 720p hd that are absolutly stunning and could compeat
With higher res and 2k that are full of artifacts and look 720.
In the philosophical aspect, the democratisation of video
Is not IMO well understood because of the brain washing
That has taken place in the sense that amateurs, indy, small
Houses are talking mainly about crisp resolutions and so on,
Domain reserved to big team, huge mediums and technical
Skills that are not accesible to everyone. They sold an illusion:
And it worked.
