standard resolution to deliver animations
on Apr 4, 2010 at 3:12:36 am

Hello,

Could you please tell me what image resolution is considered standard today to deliver animations.

I am negotiating to make an animated music video. I don't know where it will be shown -if online, if on dvd, etc-.

There are almost 3 minutes of animation, so rendering time/size of images matter.

Is 1280 x 720 good enough? can I go lower? should it be 1920 x 1080?

Thanks a lot!!

Peter

I couldn't say for sure. It seems that HD (1280 or 1920) is becoming pretty standard. But if they wanted SD that would change your aspect ratio.

I would try to pitch them an HD solution, that way they will always have a high res base version to use. It can always be downsized from there.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for replying.

It's good to know what the standard is becoming. They already set how much they want to spend -very low budget for almost 3 minutes of animation-. And they want the 16 x 9 aspect ratio. Considering is a very low budget, could I get away with a lower res and still be fair?

Thanks a lot,
Peter

Not sure where their budget lies, but if its not worth the time invested.. its up to you really.

Don't sell yourself too short.

Maybe you can tell them the extra cost to do an HD render.

Or maybe ask them to cover the extra expense of using a render farm. I've heard good things about rebusfarm.com .
