Technically everything Cinesite London ever did had to be 4K
scan/record until quite recently, although perhaps not in the accepted
terms for 4K (the data wasn't always maintained at 4K). The same I
think goes for our LA office. We have done various effects at 4K too
over the last 10 years. We've not so far done a whole feature as 4K
thoughout, but certainly we use 4K recording a lot (probably 80% of
the effects we do).
