What does DI stand for? It would be nice if acronyms like this were defined if you are going to use them

DI stands for Digital Intermediate. It is the master from which all subsequent versions are created.

DI = Digital Intermediate, basically the format/resolution in which the film is finished at. Definitely starting to see more 4K DI's - and camera capture at 4K+ now, which is great.

If you're going to blatantly copy and paste something that another person took the time to write, please provide a link to the original source. Plagiarism is incredibly rude and disrespectful.

Thanks for the explanation. Now I can make sense of the opening post!

Hopefully we won't move to 8K anytime soon if a lot of movies are being finished at 4K.

It is not a serious thread, only reflects the OP biases like 'Only 4K CG counts'. Not saying this thread is all that serious either.
