Hi

I have the retroscan Universal

For better quality ? , should I reduce the 2K to HD in FCPX or Resolve or have a direct scan in HD

Dunno, but when you get time give a detailed review. It is the only somewhat affordable option out there for scanning.

Always scan at the highest resolution of the scanner and then de-scale in post. This will help retain as much quality as possible.

I scanned this home-movie I made with the retroscan universal 2k at full scanner resolution then cropped to 1080p, here is the result. I might not have used enough lighting when scanning, some areas are to noisy for my taste but then again I did not use the capturing software's de-noising setting.
