I'm supposed to make an architectural visualisation for a billboard that will be 5x7 meters in size.

Now I'm wondering what kind of resolution I should render in. I did some googling and they all said that billboards usually are printed <30 dpi, so would a 4k or 8k render scale up fine for printing that size?

I really have no experience with this, the largest I ever did was for some DIN A0 plan, but most of what I do never leaves the digital realm, so screen resolution or 4k is usually enough.

Thanks for advice
i don't think resolution and printing sheets have anything to do with eachother.

just make a good render, rescale and zoom if you need more resolution
sounds like a plan and what I wanted to do
I have done billboards before where we would make them at 1/12th scale at 72 DPI. So a 48 foot x 18 foot billboard would be done at 48 inches x 18 inches. Even that low res would still turn out great. The view distance affords you a ton of leeway. If you are concerned make an illustrator document at the final size, paste in your render, scale it to fit and then zoom in up to 100%. But even then you would be amazed at how shit it can be and it will still work.
We just rendered in 8k and it fit 1/10th of the size of the billboard pretty well. So should be fine
