comment Can H264 achieve “equivalence” with ProRes 422?
You would probably achieve far better results when using standard h264 instead of an intra encode (i frame only). MPEG2 is far(!) worse when it comes to compression. If we are talking about a 2-3 minute 1080p trailer that can be around 30MB without any apparent visual downgrade.

I just see that MainConcepts Plug-In suite also offers DCP support, might be worth a look. mainconcept.com/eu/products/plug-ins/plug-ins-for-adobe/…

Wikipedia has a nice comparision of different encoders and their feature support: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H264#Software_encoder_feature_comparison

Thats unfortunate. I haven't seen the option in AME, I know that the MainConcept implementation supports it and x264. The former is also available as a plugin for the Adobe Media Core (e.g. all video tools).

Doing some "scientific" tests and compare the two codecs would definitely be very interesting though. I might do something like that if I find the time.

comment Can I shoot in 16:9 then change it to 4:3?
If you are going for an old film look don't lower the resolution, thats not getting you any closer to the look and limits your possibilities in post. The only good reason to shoot at a lower resolution is to save storage space. You can always downscale.

comment Does raising the framerate while not changing the bitrate result in quality loss?
Codecs today are indeed smart and you don't need to double the bitrate when you double the frame rate but I recommend at least increasing it by about a third of the original value (given that the original value wasn't too much already)
