RE: Does resolution matter anymore? The end of the debate.
So funny. I was just having this conversation with my friend. I recently shot a 4K project and squeezed everything into a 2K image. While I did notice more color fidelity, it was because of the RAW DNG capture more than the 4K resolution.
I will say the difference between RAW and Sony's XAVC codec is substantial. I haven't had the chance to test ProRes RAW, but I hear it renders Cinema DNG a needless format when on Final Cut Pro. I can't wait for that codec to come to Premiere.
