Hello Everyone,

I just finished working on a piece that I thought was just going to the web. The client now has the opportunity to put the animation on the big screen. Originally the piece was set up as 1920 x 1080. Is there a way to render this out at a high enough resolution without having the rebuild the whole thing (the screen resolution is 2048 x 1556)?

Thanks!

H

A few initial clarifying questions, if I may...
What's the nature of the footage in the comp? Any footage with a frame rate? Bitmap? Vector-only?
How does the client intend to play back your work on the big screen; i.e., what's the playback device?

Hi Dave,

It's mostly vector, some jpg's, no video.

I'm checking on the playback device now.

Thanks!

H

The reason I'm curious about the playback device is this: if it's something like a Blu-Ray player, its maximum resolution is 1920x1080: no changes necessary on your end.

[Heather Crank] "the screen resolution is 2048 x 1556"

Like Dave said, you'll need more information on the playback device -- but I'll make an educated guess that you're looking at a 2K projection system that plays DCPs.

There are currently no easy and cheap tools to author DCPs, so it might be best to talk with a local post house that has done this before and can help you, or make a regular HD video delivery (possibly Blu-Ray or file-based) if that's acceptable.
