According to the weekly reports, the open Issue list includes "#25 Gui 
HiDPI future support".

For  information, on a Dell XPS 13 (9370) ultrabook with a 13.3" UHD 4K 
panel with Leap 15/Gnome 3.26.2 installed (beside Ubuntu 18.04), its 
HiDPI properties are

xrdb -query | grep dpi
Xft.dpi:    240

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 2160, maximum 8192 x 8192
eDP-1 connected primary 3840x2160+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis 
y axis) 294mm x 165mm

The first attached screenshot shows that the Cinelerra 5.1 default UI 
scale become too small and tiny and "difficult readable" here.

As a work-around the font and icon scales can be extended twice using 
the following commands in typical the .profile:

export BC_ICON_SCALE=2
export BC_FONT_SCALE=2

This fit well on the main window menu text, but causes distorted located 
text on i.e the Setting>Format subwindow as shown on the second 
screenshot attached.
