I am not sure what question I'm asking here, but I have a suspicion it's more about math than anything else.
16mm film can be exhibited via 35mm prints and the effect is "grainy" (or any number of other adjectives like "immediate", "gritty", "natural", etc.).
What math should I do to imagine what a Scarlet image will look like when printed to a 35mm exhibition print - will it look pixelated - or will it look better?
35mm@2K: 2.3 pixels per square mm
2/3 @ 2k: 37 pixels per square mm
16:1 format ratio (35:2/3)
16:1 pixel ratio (37:2.3)
So Scarlet @ 2k = std 35mm telecine quality?
Ahh, like I said, I think I'm asking how to do the math... I have a suspicion that this is not a real comparison (like comparing 1 apple to 1 orange and saying they're the same cuz they're both 1).
(ever feel like you understand how the monkey feels about that darn tin can?)
