Aspect Ratio’s 16:9 – 4:3


Today I did some research, regarding the aspect ratio’s for 16:9 into 4:3 conversion, for my film which will be played on an old TV monitor. The information was on Adobe, I read through the pages and it has given me an insight into the ratio’s and pixels on 4:3.

When I came across the letterboxing effect pic in Adobe, I actually liked it. It reminded me of a film strip or something old, lol!


I am not sure if professionally as an artist, I am allowed to consider this an option? Would everyone think that I did a lazy job for my film or come across as unprofessional, in my technical skills? Not sure what to do?

I am new to all of this information.

I feel like I have been thrown at the deep end with this work! I mentioned yesterday, I am learning (editing in premiere pro and photoshop), as well as making work, which is stressful for me.
