1080*720 to digibeta

Hallo everybody,

I shot a film in hdcam 1080*720, 16:9. Now I want to send it to a festival and decided to export it to Digibeta.
So my question is, which aspect ratio it will be? 16:9 anamorph? I´m a little wired.

In my experience festivals prefer 16:9 anamorphic for SD.

I'll say! HD video is either 1920x1080 or 1280x720. Ain't no 1080x720.

Michael's recommendations on widescreen SD are spot-on.

There's no such thing as 1080 720.

It's either 1080 or it's 720. Two completely different things.

As for how to master it to tape, that all depends on what the film festivals will ultimately want.

The big question is why do you want to master it to tape at all? All the festivals we're sending to are taking DVDs and BluRay discs. We created all of that from the original HD ProRes files.

The only screening that required tape was National Geographic which requested the film on HDCAM. Other than that, not a single screening has been via tape.

Thanks for your commments! Yes, actually I meant 1280*720.
So, what if the festival selected my film and wants to screen it on digibeta? what`s the display aspect ratio? 16:9 anamorphic/ 1:1,85?

They will tell you exactly what they want in the specs. You must get that information from the film festival because if you don't deliver what they want, it will not screen correctly.

I don't understand so many questions and doubts.
Your original picture is 16 x 9 (1280x720) so you have only two options to go SD with the proper aspect ratio:

- 720 x 486 ANAMORPHIC

- 4x3 letter-boxed.

So If they are able to play your DigiBeta Anamorphic, just go ahead with that.

Sorry.
The same is for 1280x720 than 1920x1080.

I'm trying to output to Digibeta but when I edit to tape in FCP, the tape decks do not recognize the video, only the audio...

Any suggestions?
