Exporting a Flat File in Scope?
on Nov 11, 2019 at 10:24:48 pm

Hello -- I have a trailer that is flat (1.85:1) that I would like to export in scope ratio (2.39:1). What is the easiest way to do this in Premiere? I realize I may be losing parts of the image top and bottom.

Thanks very much. - Rob

take any horizontal square pixel image and divide by 2.39.

An image with an aspect ratio of 2.390 and a width of 4096 has a height of 1714: 4096x1714 (4k)

An image with an aspect ratio of 2.390 and a width of 3840 has a height of 1607: 3840x1607 (UHD)

An image with an aspect ratio of 2.390 and a width of 1920 has a height of 803: 1920x803 (Bluray spec)

Subsequently, you can create a new project with this 2:39 dimensions above and paste your timeline into it. Select keep existing settings and it will basically put a window over your footage like a center crop. Don't worry, the full image size is still there underneath, so you can pan, scan, and reframe. Only it's a 2:39 window and project so no messing around with a matte and then remembering to crop on export. Hope I explained it well enough.

This worked, thanks Chris! Just had to go through and adjust scale and dimensions of each shot, but not difficult. This is for my film WHAT SHE SAID, which will open on Christmas day at Film Forum.
