I think he means 1920x1080 FHD in the same way folk refer to UHD as 4K.

For me the answer would be no. FHD is four times smaller than UHD and unless you have a Red Epic or something similar you are asking a bit much. I would edit and deliver in FHD.

If you want true 4K you will need a 4K camera.

You have not told us the camera used and codec/bitrate etc for the your FHD source files. Up scaling FHD to UHD (4K) will not normally be as good as an original 4K file. There are cameras that can produce very good quality FHD files while others will produce poor quality. Starting off with a poor quality 8bit heavily compressed FHD file upscalled to UHD will be poor. Whilst a high quality 10bit FHD file up scaled will look reasonable.

Why not try some tests up scaling and then play back the UHD file on a good quality 4K TV and compare with the same original FHD file played back on the same TV. Then you will see if the results are acceptable to you.

If want a good quality 4K camera then look at something like a Sony Venice, or if you want a lower budget 4K camera then there are plenty to choose from. Basically you can get some 8 bit 4K that is not as good as 10 bit FHD depending on camera/lens and recording formats/compression etc. Peter

It's been a long time since you first asked this question. What is your current camera? What do you shoot now? What is your budget since moving to 4K will likely mean a change to the PC and software too.

If you shoot in HD then there is no need to convert to 4K, it wonít improve in quality, if you have a client asking for 4K then you need to shoot in 4K.
A low budget camera to shoot in 4K is the panasonic G80 or even cheaper a GX80 or if you donít need IBIS the G7 can still be found for a low price and produces a good 4K image.
