DPX file resolution when scanning 35mm 3-perf?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this is my 1st post. I searched the forum but couldn't find an answer to my question. If it has already been answered before please accept my apologies.


When you scan a 3-perf film in 2K resolution what is the pixel resolution of the resulting DPX or TIFF file?


Thanks in advance.

Depends slightly on exactly which scanner you use and how it handles full aperture (or at least full-width, in the case of 3-perf) shooting.


Generally either 2048 wide or 1900-ish wide by however high you're cropping it.

The standard 2K 3-perf res (if there is such a thing) is 2048x1156, but as Phil says it depends how much your scanner crops it. I've seen 3-perf come off a Spirit as 2048x1165.
