That One Thing I Love/Hate about 4K Right Now

If you work on the web, you deliver video in 1080p. 4K is 4x the size of 1080p so you can get away with the 'cut-in'

Here's an example of a 'Cut-In', a completely seamless cut from a wide to a close, done with the same original footage.

I don't mean this as a knock against Lynda (from whom I created the gif). They make great videos and their presenters are awesome. 4K is just a wonderful newish format that allows you to cut within the same clip without an apparent 'jump cut' if you deliver for 720p/1080p.

I love it because it solves an editing problem. I hate it because it's a high tech solution to a lo-fi issue.

Did your talent mess up on camera? Don't roll another take, we'll use a 'cut-in'.
