im just wrapping up a film for a client. its a cinematic short and will be transfered on to film ( i dont know much about this) however the resolution they asked us to work in was 2048 x 1536 (which i think is a carry forward from the usual) 720 x 540
now my question is - is this the right way of going about this? i know Phil Nibbelink who did Romeo and Juliet and went straight from Flash to Film worked in 2048 x 1234.
following is from the CHF message board
I animated at 2048 x 1234 which is 1.66. I then composed for 1.85 and TV cut off with a center extraction. 1.66 is a good aspect ratio to shoot at because when you telecine the TV cut off brings your north and south back to 1.85. And if you've composed for center extraction there are no nasty surprises and you don't have to pay for 'pan and scan'. [/QUOTE]
