Watch SHANKS FZ create the cosmos with the Canon 5DS to achieve 8K resolution!

The Canon 5DS has a 50.6 megapixel which is equivalent to an 8688 X 5792 aspect ratio. Believe it or not I actually had to scale down to 89% to fit the 8K aspect ratio of 7680 X 4320.

They shot image sequences with the “high speed continuous mode” on which allowed us to capture at around 2-4 frames per second. Then brought images it into After Effects, turned them into 24fps image sequences. The 8K compressed video was around 14GB in size.
