Best resolution to shoot in?
I am shooting a short film soon with my GH4 and I am not quite sure what resolution I should shoot the film with. The goal is to show the film online, but also on some theaters/festivals if we are so lucky.
At first I wanted to shoot the film in Cine 4K, but now I am doubting if this is the best option. 90% of the movie will be normal 24fps, but there will be some shots shot in 96fps. So is it reasonable or even necessary for the output resolution to be 4K, what will happen to those 1080p slomo shots?
Or should I shoot in 4K as I first planned and then render it to a output format of 1080p? I would like to know is it worth it to shoot in 4K and mix in some 1080p shots, or should I just film the entire film in 1080p?
