Let's starts with a few.
Remember I'm using the standard Lightworks v14 for now.

1. Is DCP-o-matic better than OpenDCP?
The latter doesn't have an official documentation anymore (not even an unofficial one actually), which makes things difficult.

2. What's the best way to export your video from Lightworks to these two programs?
From what I read here, exporting as a DPX image sequence seems to be the only proper solution as it's the only format that supports 10-bit colour. Is that right?

3. One DPX frame is 6.70MB, the same as the BMP file. All normal?

4. Audio: the audio is a major issue. How do I make 3.1 sound?
What I plan to do is this: export the main sound track as 1 mono track for Center and the music as 2 tracks for Left and Right. But there's something I don't understand: should those 2 music tracks be a duplicate of each other, or do I have to export Stereo Left and Stereo Right? I read that stereo sound doesn't work in cinema; but that was for dialogues, does it apply to music as well?

I'll add more later.
