I would argue, rather than go to 2K data, just transfer it to 24PsF HDCam
(or SR 4:4:4), and then transfer the tape as 2K DPX files for the final
workflow.  I bet that would look better than PAL.

I'm not convinced there's a drastic difference for 16mm going to HDCam vs.
scanning as data, either.  Even with 35mm, there's plenty of DI projects
that have gone through SR as an interim scanning medium, and they came out
