Can you export 4k uncompressed?

Postby FrankyKnuckles on 06/28/2015, 9:02 pm

I need to export a 4k clip from my sequence to someone who'll be doing some cleanup (sign replacement, etc) and matchmoving in NUKE. What is an uncompressed format best to send so that I don't lose any information in terms of it being compressed, etc?

I'm assuming the person doing the work in NUKE should be able to send it back to me in the same format and I will still have pretty close to the raw footage I started with?

I'd go for Quicktime Animation or a PNG sequence.

Any specific reason you choose those two?

I seem to find different opinions from Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) if you're on a Mac to just Animation if you're on a PC.

Is there a certain codec that holds up no matter which platform we are using?

He's on a PC and I am on a Mac.

I always use exr's for everything as I can store whatever channels I want in them, but Targa sequences are the fastest for scrubbing and previews in Nuke. You got a very well researched article about it here.

I've been reading EXR's are best, however I have 4k footage I shot with and adobe premiere doesn't export that. I've also read DPX formats are really good. Have you used that format before when doing any work in compositing, etc?
