    Cineform decoder is free for any resolution and quality. Encoder is free up to HD as far as I know.
    Not many compressed codecs support 4K, your best bet is h264 at the moment (h265 is still far from being usable in real world).
    Intermediate codecs: ProRes, Cineform, ffmpeg based lossless ffv1, utvideo, etc., proprietary, but free Canopus HQX (great codec with PC and Mac versions), Sony's branded XAVC (which is just h264 inside MXF). There are other option but with limited support.
