Resize option not working in Output render settings

I have a comp which is 2880 x 480 which I want to render to resize and out at 1280 x 720. I have selected 'resize' in the render settings and put in the new resolution however when it renders it keeps coming out at 2880 x 480.

I have tried it as HAP and photo jpeg codecs. Anything I am doing wrong? I have tried it in 2015 and 2017.

The comps are all just using solids and effects so I was hoping that there wont be much detail loss when resizing it as none of it is bitmap material.

Odd that it is not working. A work-around is to create a new 1280x720 comp, drop your finished comp in that and scale it down. Then export that smaller composition.

[kit webster] "I have a comp which is 2880 x 480 which I want to render and resize out at 1280 x 720."

That'll be a problem. The original comp is SIX TIMES WIDER than it is tall. 1280x720 is 1.78 times wider than it is tall. There's a tiny-little difference in aspect ratio going on.

Moreover, you'd have to scale up the original comp to 150% just to fit top to bottom in the new resolution.

Do you see what's wrong with your picture?
