Is it possible to edit at 2k and 4k?

Is it possible to edit at 2k and 4k? I mean, not you just need an ultrapowerfull computer. But how do you see such a big image?

How do people preview the images at an inferno station? Do the have monitors capable of 4k and 6k?

bye!

I have not done this, so I could be very wrong here BUT . . .

There are systems like Discreet's Fire, Inferno and Quantel IQ
can edit and composite a 2K or 4K *Digital Intermediary*.
That means you 'bounce' from film to video via a film telecine.
Many use a less intensive video format like 1080P @24fps/23.97 Timecode
for an offline edit. I believe the higher resolution 2K and 4K DIs are output
back to film as most projectors cannot handle this kind of signal.

From a Google search for "World's highest resolution monitor" :

<The IBM T221 is 22.2" inch wide (16:10) LCD monitor with 9.2 million pixels arranged in stunning 3840x2400 (QUXGA-W) resolution, contrast ratio of 400:1 >

I think this costs about $22,000.00!

400:1 contrast ratio or 4000:1?

Bluefish444's new cards can edit 2K/4K in Premiere. Also, there are a few monitors on the market that have been available for a while that are 9MegaPixel. Viewsonic has a model and it's actually not that expensive. Significantly less than $22K.

I don't think it could be 4000:1. If it were I would dismiss that as bull.

A *real* 400:1 contrast ratio would be great.

Personally, I would not attempt to edit 2K files on Premier
at this time :)

Save your money for Discreet.

editing 2k-4k

This app edits in those resolutions but you would need a very top end video card like wildcat or the top nvidia ouattro pro.

the question is why the hell would you need to see all pixels.
a Hidef preview (1280x720 or 1600x1200 for example) should be ok to give you an idea if your are getting good results.
And as you are working on computer, you still can zoom on the picture to check finest details (for keying for example).

Its the same as when you import a high resolution image into photoshop you just click on zoom to what ever suits you.
