Hi,
I have a 1440 screen recording master video and did some video editing in iMovie. The problem is that iMovie lets me export only at max 1080 resolution.

File properties:

Pretty sure that you can only use the ones shown, although you can use 4K. Which version of iMovie are you using? I don't recognise those Screenshots.

It was using iMovie 10.1.5

Those screenshots were taking in the project settings:

And in the File > Share > File ... menu



I actually ended up using Final Cut Pro where it's possible to set a custom 2K resolution:
