    working with 4k footage?   (on a machine that doesnt handle 4k)

    djmattyz Level 1

      i have been asked to do some VFX work on a film

       

      thing is they are working on 4k footage,  and my computer would probably burst into flames if it saw 4k footage

      its just about ok with HD 

       

      the editor mentioned the possibility of workin on HD and him relinking the 4k footage on his end when i send it back to him

       

      any of you guys know the feasability of this?

       

      most of the work i will be doing will involve masking out puppet strings, and im concerned that there would be unpredictable results if we were to relink 4k footage after editing the project using HD footage...the masks could go haywire etc.

       

      any suggestions on how i might deal with this?
