Panasonic GH4 in 4K for Ken Burns Effects in FCPX

Here is a nice introduction into the Ken Burns effect using Final Pro X.
Why is 4K so much more exciting for using the Ken Burns effect? If your original material is 1080p you need to use smaller areas than 1080p. This implies an upsampling to 1080p: means inventing pixels. With 4K you can use crops that have more tham 1080p pixels: means downsampling with no loss in quailty.
