Hi,

I know very little about aspect ratio and have created a 640 by 480 (4:3) composition, but it seems too low a resolution. I am trying to achieve a similar visual effect to that of films such as Fish Tank and Wuthering Heights (2011). I usually film in uhd and downscale to 1080, and I scaled down the footage to fit the 4:3 composition but it seems a lower resolution or like I've lost much of the image quality.

Here's an example of my video:





For this example I edited in 4:3 and exported to 1080 for youtube so that you can see it, but I think that's going about it in the wrong way.

Any suggestions appreciated (and also any general cinematographic suggestions because I'm not very experienced)

Thanks

640x480 is standard definition video with an aspect ratio of 4x3. 1920x1080 has a 16x9 aspect ratio and is HD. Based on your question it sounds like you exported at 640x480, then upscaled back to 1080 when you compressed for YouTube. You took out a ton of resolution when you went to 640x480, which is why you lost image quality. If you want a 1080 video with a 4x3 aspect ratio you would have to put your sequence settings at 1440x1080.

Perfect! I didn't realise 1440x1080 was 4x3. Thanks a bunch.

You're welcome. If you needed to figure out a different resolution, take your height/3 * 4. So in this case 1080/3 = 360 * 4 = 1440.

4/3 = 1.33
1440/1080 = 1.33
