When you guys render your videos that you shot in 4K, do you do in what you shot it at or down render to 1080p? I'm asking because most people don't have a 4K monitor or TV or the power on there computer to watch it smoothly.
That's what I do right now, I film in 4K and then down render to 1080p. I can't see any difference on my monitor and it saves on upload time.If your computer hardware and editing software will handle the original 4K footage, go with that and when you save your final cut you should be able to choose the final output resolution. Also consider your delivery method... if it's going on YouTube, the file will be recompressed again. IMHO, I would not bother with 4K for YouTube streaming.
I don't think so, but I have the 4K footage for when I do need it and it doesn't take any longer to render down to 1080p. I do edit all my videos to cut out all the useless parts.
Ah. Okay. I'm using PD 16 as well and that's the way I set up a new profile. I have been using 40-50,000 bit rate. I've never understood the CABAC/CAVLC.
