Editing 4K offline
This may be a stupid question, but I've been unable to find an answer and I haven't come across this issue before.
Can I shoot something in 4K, edit offline with 1080p proxies in an HD timeline, and then relink them to the original 4K files in a 4K timeline and still retain the 4K resolution?
I ask this because we are coming up on shooting a feature, which will be shot on several GH4's in 4K. After the edit we are sending it to a post house for audio mastering and color grading. We want to send our colorist a 4K timeline. Can that be done editing offline with 1080p proxies, or do the proxies have to be the desired resolution, which in this case is 4K?
