Scaling video for large format display
by Matt Holland on Feb 18, 2015 at 9:10:23 pm
I'm in the process on developing content for a rather large video display at an up coming trade show. Here are the dimensions I'm working with in AE:
9 screens high x 1 screen (960 x 4888)
6 screen high x 1 screen (960 x 3254)
These will be scaled 2x to fill the 1920x1080 screens.
I have been asked to include some footage (1920x1080) in the columns but I'm concerned that the scaling involved will leave us with a nasty looking final product. The footage will essentially be scaled up 6x. Of course, the intent is that these columns will be viewed from a distance. Should I avoid scaling or not? Should I opt for 4K stock footage instead?
