No sorry that should be overall pixels.
If you output through a PS plug in you must make sure that outputting - i.e.
to 4K is
within 4032x2689 on either side. If you don't then it will print small - or
print. - that's Polaroid Plugin.

You change the backs for other formats which alters the tube /back distance.
yes all you are
doing is photographing a monitor.

When its broken down like this its only giving 2850ppi - at 4K or 5650ppi
There were some other figures off the old Rasterplus programme but I can't find
these were much lower then the ppi and I don't think they were in ppi terms.
But recording to film is very much dependent on the quality of the Film
Recorder itself, as
I have mentioned before, and not a true indication of the films resolving
ability or what we
scan at. I do know that the better the scan there is much more information
delivered to the
recorder and the quality improves - and the best resolution on my printer is
across any film format.
I have noticed even printing at 7K (~5000dpi) , which I can now scan optically,
than 4K from a 2700 dpi scan.
