Hello all,
I had a question about sending a QT file with 5.1 and stereo embedded. I have sent this type of file before to aggregators but my question is: if I send this type of file to a venue that is not being clear on what format they prefer and say they can do both but I don't want to only send 5.1 if I'm not sure they have proper set up and want to avoid sending two different files, if I send them a file with the 7 tracks (5.1+stereo pair) will they be able to play it from a surround sound set up or if they can't and play stereo will it work and sound alright?

Thank you for you help!

Hello all,

I am working on a feature doc in a 1920x1080 Apple Prores 422 HQ timeline with black bars cropping the image to our preferred size which is 1920 x 804. By the distributor we were asked to deliver a

feature file Pro Res
4444 1920x1080
with textless elements on HDD or digidelivery

this is because they will be in charge of making DCP etc.

My questions are:

1. How smooth or even possible is a move from 422 HQ to 4444? I couldn't simply change the timeline settings without messing something up correct? Would it be a big difference if we delivered a 422 HQ file? I can ask them but wanted to be a little more informed before suggesting it.

2. If they are going to make a DCP from this file that means that it would have to be kept at 1920x1080 ratio right? Meaning if they were planning on making a 2k DCP they would have to stretch the file and so we should make sure they are not planning on doing that? Potentially we could send them a 2k digital file already cropped to our desired size (2048x858) so they could move forward from there without compromising quality.

Thank you to all for your help!

Hello all, Mine is more of a general request for advice more than a specific issue. We are working on a feature doc and we have recently gotten the list of deliverables from our distribution company.
