best max size, square pixel Seq setting?
on May 7, 2014 at 10:01:32 pm

I've tried to bone up on my seq setting & HD standards but am finding this answer elusive.

I'm working for a client who is making web video (no TV involved). I'm sourcing a lot of material from the web (YouTube etc), much of it is 1920x1080, but it's a real mix.

I want to choose the largest square pixel Seq setting that is not interlace. Is this a reasonable request? This is not for TV so a preset that is interlace or rectangular pixel is not useful - but I don't see a preset that seems like a perfect fit, what am I missing? Would you select HDTV1080i then choose Field dominance = None?

How would you approach this?

Thanks,

Paul

Web video can be kind of nebulous in terms of size. Who's going to host it?

A lot of people I know say 1280x720 is about as big as you need.

Good call Dave. For the last job the deliverable was a 4x3 mp4 for use in PowerPoint 960x720. So 1280x720 would have been satisfactory. 720p is probably a safe bet, just trying to hang on to all the rez I'm provided with to cover myself.

Still wondering "Would you select HDTV1080i then choose Field dominance = None?" is a fools errand or valid.

I guess it depends on the frame rate. If you're going to keep it at 59.94, don't worry about field order, or just play it safe with a field order of None.

If you're going to go with 29.97 -- and the video was shot interlaced-scan -- it will need deinterlacing. But if it was shot PROGRESSIVE SCAN -- and it could have been, you don't say -- go with a field order of None.
