Please don't do that. Get a Ryzen, soooo much better (AMD Fanboy who's owned FX and Ryzen).
What you're doing is culling footage. You're putting "selects" on track 2.
To remove the space, create a black video (or use a color matte or anything can be stretched infinitely) on the track above your selects. Stretch it out past the start and end of your selects, select all your selects, slide them up into the black video so it cuts the black video to fill in the gaps between your selects. While the selects are still selected, move them back down to their original track. No you have all your selects on track 1 and a bunch of clips of black video on track 2. Select all the black video clips, hold shift (or alt or something) and press delete, and it will delete all the space between the clips on track 1 (as long as you moved the selects straight down without shifting time code).

Please don't use scale to frame size. Use Set to Frame Size.
Your colorist will thank you.
(Can't remember which to use? Just SET down and think about it).
Or we could just all agree that we shouldn’t use sex scenes anymore.
What are the advantages of IMAX running horizontally and with more perforations than 70mm?
I'll have to research what you're saying about compression ratios.
At my studio, we've been shooting 6k RAW on the Red Epic-W and the file sizes are totally manageable. We don't output for projection though, so I'm not familiar with DCP. I suppose it has a max data rate? I've only mastered one thing in 4k (not UHD) and used ProRes.
