Aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of the image to its height.

2.35 aspect ratio means the picture is 2.35 time wider than high.

For FullHD video (1920 x 1080): You simply divide the width (1920) by 2.35 to get the correspondent height

1920/2,35 = 817

So your 2.35 video is 1920 pixels wide and 817 pixels high.

Maybe these help for better understanding:

One way is to create a full-sized picture or video that has markings for the aspect ratio you like, show it on the monitor and tape it accordingly. You can prepare a foil (is that the correct english term?) with different cropping marks and put it on your monitor or screen.

If you have a Canon VDSLR (other than the 7D) you can use Magic Lantern and the provided cropmarks
