I met my dear friend Loren perhaps 20 years ago. When she learned I had two little girls (at that time), she smiled, wagged her finger at me and said, “little girls, little problems, big girls, biggggg problems.” Though we’ve been very fortunate with both, what she said is undoubtedly true. And when it comes to per-title encoding, the corollary is, 1080p video, little problems, 8K video, biggg problems.
Here’s the backstory. Some folks from the 8K Industry Association saw a presentation I gave on per-title encoding and asked if I had any data for 8K. I said no. They sent an 8K file entitled Ripartenza. Figure 1 shows the MediaInfo data; it’s a 25 fps 8K file in ProRes 422 format with a 10-bit color depth, but uses the BT.709 color primaries so the version I got is not HDR.
