I need some help and wonder if any of you creates DCP in DaVinci and if it's possible doing it this way.
I have a short film (10min long), final export full HD at 25fps 16:9 (but we shot in 2.39 scope so it comes with letterbox). So far Festivals have always been asking for a vimeo link or DVD, and now we've been selecting for a Festival accepting only DCP.
in the exporting setting I know you have the video format option of easyDCP
-codec: 2K DCP (there's also the option of flat and scope, but I thought as the final export is 16:9 to keep the codec as general 2K DCP and let the cinema screen, or if the film is 2.40 I need to select 'scope'?)
-what about max DCP bit rate?
-do I need to select/work on any another setting? for instance compression: lossless, interop packaging or encrypt package?
I gave it a try and export a version, and I've got this folder with some xml and mxf files, and I litereally never wondered what a DCP really looks like.
how then could I open a DCP? so to check colors and everything is the same as my final QuickTime export for instance?
thank you so much for any input
