shooting for both 4:3 and 16:9 in SD... solutions?
on Oct 13, 2005 at 3:39:10 pm


We have a show that will be delivered to two different broadcasters. It will be shot in SD. One wants 16:9 anamorphic the other wants 4:3. I wonder if others have dealt with this situation and what workflow might be in use.

A few issues. Overall I am trying to resist doing the two different versions for obvious reasons; I'd rather just do the one 4:3 version.

But if i have to i wonder if it is feasible to shoot 4:3 and then crop for the 16:9 version.. it is supposed to be anamorphic so I'd have to stretch the image.. Not ideal .. but I wonder if anyone is doing that and what the results are like.

Or we originate in sd 16:9 anamorphic.. then blow it up for the 4:3 version.. that sounds terrible to me.

Any other scenarios? Any other tips or pointers?

We are onlining on a decklink extreme system and mastering to Digibeta via SDI.
