I'm about to output in 4K a final master project file for a short film that was primarily shot in 4K, but also has some clips in 1920 by 1080 and even 1280 by 720.
I'm not concerned with how long the export takes. Is there any downside (or benefit) to activating "maximum render quality"? What about "render at maximum depth"? 24 bit or 48 bit?
I would think for a master file, you'd max out all of this, no?
Thank you for any and all input. I will use the master file to generate Vimeo, Apple TV, etc. dubs.
Use Maximum Render Quality: Mostly affects upscaling of content. If you're not upscailing, you won't notice much of a difference. Looks like you might be upscaling content to 4k, so I'd say yes to turning this on.
Render at Maximum Depth: What is the bit-depth of your source content? Do you have any content in your sequence that would benefit from the higher bit-depth?
If you really don't care how long it takes to export, you might as well turn these on. The drawback is the longer encode time.
