I’ve been using targa sequences for animations for clients in SD and HD in the past. I have done little post work and use premiere pro to encode.
I’m beginning to move some of my workflow to photoreal vray rendering from scanline and also upping the size to 4K renders.
From the training I’m getting, it looks like OpenEXR is the way to go now for rendering image sequences. I’m guessing because the file size is less than targas, it is still lossless, and it contains some exposure control that I wasn’t sure was in the targas, although it may have been.
I’m not sure premiere pro cs6 can import OpenEXR, but after effects cs6 can, and since photoreal work requires post work, i.e. color correction, exposure adjustments, et. al, I was wondering what you all use to render your image sequences to and why.
