You can’t.For real? Just how much can you really keep improving on picture quality with more numbered K resolutions?
Older emulsions scan nicely at 4k, newer possibly at 6. 65mm at 8, then downrezzed to 4 or finished at 8.
The difference between 4 and 8k on a large screen, from a normal seating distance?
Minimal to zero.
Reminds me, in an odd way, of one of my best friends growing up, who felt the need at age 11 or 12 to stuff her bra with KIeenex. Bragging rights, that in the end made minimal difference - from a normal seating distance.
If I recall correctly, IMAX data to film records were normally 2k. Possibly higher now. I've not checked.
