Re: Proper Way to resize 16:9 footage to 2.35:1 in Resolve

I am curious, which camera gives you 3200 x 1800 frame size file?

Regarding workflow, in general you are better off sticking to frame size standard (HD, 2K, 4K, etc...) because of compatibility issues with software and hardware.
For your delivery master files, depending on your medium target (broadcast, DCP, Youtube, etc...), you might be better off using common file standard and using cropping to achieve your desired frame aspect ratio.

In Resolve, I usually conform in the edit page using the Movie inspector panel to fill accordingly my frame.
I use the Output blanking from the Timeline menu to define the aspect ratio (letterbox settings)

If you don't want to upscale any footage, make sure you define your Project setting, under Master setting accordingly to your maximum frame resolution. In Resolve you can always override these settings when creating your master in the delivery page, except it might affects any transformation you might apply on your shots.

Hope this help,
