Can you Output 4K Project from Davinci Resolve?

Resolve will output either uncompressed or H.264 compressed MOV files at 4K although will not make other kinds of files.  The range of output formats does not improve if you buy the software as opposed to using the free version since the paid version basically adds higher than UDH support, better acceleration with multiple graphic cards and extra noise reduction.

Resolve will output 4K using Blackmagic's own hardware, which is also the cheapest hardware available to output 4K footage.
