Aight that sounds good if that doesn’t work check that it’s rgb not cmyk.

So regarding the Anamorphic workflow. I mostly keep it as is and use ‘view ratio’. But what would be the best way to give to a client if they ask for a TIFF in the highest resolution? Would you do width x 2, or height /2. I also noticed some funky stuff when trying to planar track anamorphic footage in the past. So that was another reason to flatten it out.

For that specific request i would double the x.

That said, I’m gonna use Topaz to upscale anything beyond 2k, so I’d go against my own advice for any shot that required comp work. Haha.
