I'm planning on creating a time lapse from a series of still images. I plan to shoot the images in raw (Nikon NEF, Adobe RGB), then edit with Photoshop and export as jpegs (highest quality). I am planning on then putting them into an NLE (either FCPX, Resolve, or Premiere Pro) to turn them into a time lapse video.
I am trying to preserve the highest quality for the final video, so my questions are:
- Is this the best way to preserve quality? If not, what is?
- Also, what will the final quality be? (In terms of retained data?) ie: is there enough data retained, such that if I export it as ProRes4444 there will be more information than ProRes4:2:2? Or is there already such reduced quality that it won't matter?
I understand that this question may be poorly worded, but I believe it is on-topic and relevant, so please edit it or comment for clarification.
