I am a long (long long) time reader, first time poster here.
As a recent owner of a GH4 (coming from a GH2 and skipping the GH3), I have marveled at the idea of down-sampling the 4k footage to 10bit 4 4 4 1080p.
I have gone through this entire thread. Lots of great tech info here, but a question has been raised in here without really being answered. For those of use not really caring about the science and just wanting to get down to the brass tax of the matter:
Does ANYONE out there have a brief, concise, step by step guide on how one actually performs the down-sample process from 4k to 1080p using either After Effects or Premiere? (I am talking the trans-code here, not simply scaling the footage)
The science behind it all is great and wonderful, but a simple, bullet-point guide on how to perform the actual down-sample using After Effects or Premiere would really be the ticket here....
Can anyone post on this? I think it would be really helpful for a lot of us.
