Hi. You're making a movie with a 60D (1080p FULL HD at 24p) and you want to blowup it to 35mm. What resolution would you use in FinalCut? Full HD (leaving all the hard and expensive work to the LAB)? 2k (resizing the 1080p FULL HD material to 2k size)? OR 4K (resizing the 1080p FULL HD material to 4k size)?
 
Any additional tip will be much appreciated!

From a lab perspective always edit in the native resolution. Scaling is complex and can be done with many different algorithms depending on the look and content. It will also be easier on your end.

Seconded. Cut it as HD. Almost all filmout facilities will be able to deal with HD.

 

Although you should be talking to your filmout house at this point, anyway.
