I am just finishing my feature and the post facility have asked me what output I want.
For starters, I am sure I need these 5:
2x ProRes 4444 files (1 is textless)
2x H.264 files (1 is textless)
1x DCP (unlocked)
I would also like to have 2 different versions in terms of the aspect ratio, which grow into 4 versions if we want to incorporate 2k and 4k
2x 2.39:1 (DCI scope) for cinema:
- 2048x858 (2k)
- 4096x1716 (4k)
2x 16:9 (full frame) for TV / streaming
- 1920x1080 (Full HD)
- 3840x2160 (4k)
In addition, since my film is around 2/3 in English and 1/3 in another language, I'd need 3 versions in terms of subtitles:
2x embedded subtitles
- English subtitles
- other subtitles
1x no embedded subtitles
So the number of permutations becomes huge!
What would you recommend?
