Change full screen playback ratio
on Jun 28, 2016 at 2:17:17 pm


I'm editing a 1080 video in a 1080 timeline but I am currently playing around with aspect ratios. I've added some widescreen bars using a png file on the timeline.

I'm currently using an LG Ultrawide monitor and am curious to know if there's a way to change the full screen playback so I wouldn't see the black bars so the video would fill the screen.

I've tried editing in a 1080x822 timeline for the effect but the footage seems to lose resolution this way.

Any ideas if it's possible?

Well, you're going to lose resolution one way or another if you shoot 1080 video. There's no way around it. You can't invent what isn't there. You need to shoot higher-resolution video so you work in a timeline resolution that works with the wide monitor, then scale & position the high-resolution video to frame it properly for the wide monitor.

Incidentally, how do you plan to play back this super-wide video on normal HD monitors? Or is this just something you'll play for your own enjoyment?
