Marco wrote:Resolution is a factor, but a 4k-picture enlarged from a 2k-Alexa-"negative" will look much better than the most 4k-Red-picture, because the Alexa reacts better in color, exposure, contrast...
Francesco wrote:Marco, have you seen/used the new REDcolor2 and REDlogFilm in RedCineX?
Marco wrote:If somebody likes the Red-look, fine. If you did not like it till now, you will not like it in the near future.
Roger wrote:A release print (from an IP/IN) of a film shot spherical 1:85 on a medium speed stock does not have the full resolution of the original negative. If you say the camera negative has a resolution of 4/5K, which is probably on the generous side for a 5217 or 5219 negative, I doubt the audience would ever see an image with a higher resolution than 2K.
I have no doubt that there will be 6K cameras and 6K projectors in the future, just as there will be affordable electric cars for everyone.
Andrew Rieger wrote:Does this mean that the Alexa is behind the times? No but I don't think they anticipated 4K moving as quickly as it did when they started designing. The Alexa will still look stunning in 4K so it is not a problem. I saw Black Swan in 4K and it looked great and that was 16mm.
Andrew Rieger wrote: It is true though that Red does have a "look" and many are not fans. Still, I have seen some Alexa footage and to me at least, it looks Red-like. Take for example the trailer for the Disney film Prom, the first major release shot on Alexa, which to my eyes, could have easily been shot on Red, it has the "Red Look"- very sharp, very digital.
