Hi,

We'll have a special project to grade.
It was shot in RED EPIC 5K, anamorphic
It's for TV so output has to be in 1920x1080

And the ratio of the picture has to be 2.0

What's the best setup ?
1920x1080 timeline with output zoom to reach 2.0 aspect ?
or 2160x1080 timeline with 1920x1080 output ?
Or .... ?

Of course, it will be rendered with full premium debater

Config : Mac Pro 2010, 12x2,4Ghz, 32Go Ram, 3xTITAN ,GT120, Decklink 3D+, RED Rocket, system on Crucial SSD 500, RAID FC 8gb Lacie 24To, CYCLONE PCI expander, Resolve 10.0.2

Hello Thibault,

I would build your project as the image ratio with the custom project size; like for 2.39:1 in 1080 is 1920x804.

Do you mean that the anamorphic lens is 2:1 stretch and the ratio of the footage is 2.39:1 (it would have been shot with default 2.39:1 frame guides or custom frame guides, ask what they did)?

Then export as desired and Resolve will matte the empty space for you.

I hope this is helpful?

Cheers,
Robert

hi Roberts,

It was shot in anamorphic so I just change the pixel aspect ratio of each clip, using 'cinemascope' setting.

My first choice was to create as you said a 2.0 timeline, which is 1920x960.

I was wondering if there is a quality difference between two settings :

-1920x960 timeline, 1920x1080 output,
-1920x1080 timeline, output zoom to reach 2.0, 1920x1080 output

Best,

Thibault
