4K Quality vs. Full HD
If you’re exporting for full HD, you may think that filming in 4K is just going to be a waste of data — and it may complicate your post-production workflow. Why film in 4K when you’re just going lose the extra resolution with a 1080p export?
Well, you don’t quite lose everything. When you downscale from 4K to full HD, you’re essentially oversampling the image to have 4x the data for every pixel. Therefore, when you have 4K footage and downscale it to 1080p (Full HD), the image is going to look better than it would at native 1080p. You’ll find the picture is a lot sharper, the colors more vivid, and (depending on the properties of the image) you’ll also see less noise.
