Hello all.

A quick question for any of you guys and gals that have some  
experience producing work at film res.

We're just starting to work out technical specs on a motion graphics  
job that needs to be delivered
in 1080 HD and also 2k film res. Client is unclear about the exact 2k  
specs at the moment, but has tossed
out 2048 x 1108 for a 1.85 aspect ration as a possibility.

I see 3 default options in houdini
Acad 2k ( 2048 x 1556)

Scope 2k (1828 x1556)

Vista 2k (3072 2048)

Just wondering if any of these are considered more common or more  
"standard"  above the other options.
The end product would be an ID to play before various films and shows  
etc, so I'm simply try to get a bit educated
on the most commonly used 2k formats.

There has also been talk about delivering at 4k. But through a bit of  
research so far it's looking like
4k would be overkill for this type of projects?? Is that an accurate  
assumption ...... or would it make a big

Thanks for any thoughts, As always, any advice would be greatly
