hi all
i am plannig to do DI for a sequence in a film.
the entire film is going to be shot in anamorphic format with
hawk lens (anamorphic lens).
now for this sequence for DI ...is this ok to shoot also in
35 format...or should i opt for super 35...so that gives me
more of the negative image....so therby higher resolution.
OR...could i still get a good DI output with anamorphic lens.
thanks.

Actually, anamorphic always uses more negative area than super 35. The reason super 35 has had a resurgence in popularity in conjunction with the DI is that you can eliminate the nasty squeezing optical printing step and unsqueeze in the DI. With that in mind, many people feel that the tradeoffs between super 35 and anamorphic are less, and would rather go with super 35, because of the various benefits it has (ie lens selection, less lights, etc.) If you are shooting anamorphic to begin with, then there is no reason to go with super 35, unless this DI sequence is an effects heavy one and your vfx team would prefer super 35.
