The final product is a disc basically - what blu ray is to DVD , DCP is to Blue Ray.
I wouldn't mind hearing what some people are using in 2017. I have the DCP option in Adobe Premiere, but have not tried it, yet.
So, who has done it and what are you using?
We did our latest indie film using the Premiere DCP export. Was super easy and worked right out of the box at our local theater. They had zero problems with it and the whole process was smooth.
Forgot..one issue was the estimated file size was WAAAYYYYY off. It estimated like 1 TB of space..it ended up being about 80GB if I remember correctly.

Thank you for your reply. I have read the faq. The things
which I confused is the conversion of dcp. For instance, if I have a 1920x1080 24p mp4 file. Can dcp conversion qualify this file to 2.40:1 cinema? 1920x1080 is only 1.78:1.
The DCI spec allows for 16:9 aspect, despite not being specifically defined. If you conformed 1.78:1 to 2.40:1 you could either have a squashed or cropped frame. You'd be better off slightly cropping to 1.85:1, but your best bet would be to use the full 16:9 frame.
