    YouTube´s widescreen resolution

    Post  myu on Mon Jul 19, 2010 8:29 pm

    I´m having some problems with YouTube´s widescreen video option. I pretty much know how to make HD videos like that, but I really don´t want to to start drawing huge pictures which resolutions are something like 1280×720. I´ve tried different widescreen resolutions with Sony Vegas and good old Movie Maker, but nothing. X( My test videos always end up to be in normal 4:3 aspect ratio instead of 16:9. So, does anyone know is it even possible to upload widescreen videos with smaller resolutions? If it is, how do you do it?

    well if you are like me and have an old school 4:3 monitor but still you want some 16:9 going use the pan crop feature of Sony Vegas :

    - click on the little square at the right of an image or video
    - it should bring the "event pan/crop" window from the preset drop down menu
    select 16:9 widescreen TV aspect ratio preset then on the preview just move
    the window to achieve the desired view.
    - Also make sure that your project use the widescreen resolution you want
    (file --> properties)
    - And obviously render in the same resolution

    It always better to make the highest resolution available to you since it will be later easier to make lower resolution.

    Don't forget to export the video in 16:9 ratio at 1280x720. If all is correct your video should be widescreen if you export like that. (Sometimes I forget to change the aspect ratio too... That's why I save presets for it in my video editor.)

    1280x720 is huge now? o.o

    I've always considered something like 2800x2200 something huge.

    And Agent J is correct.

    Although if you must render in a lower resolution, you can set a custom frame size and uncheck the "Stretch Video to fill Output box size" box to keep all items in their original ratios.

    Then just multiply 16 and 9 by any number and it's go.

    853 x 480
    640 x 360

    etc.
