2K vs 720p?

As you may know we are offering the new Action Essentials in 2 versions, 720p high definition and 2k film-resolution. The idea is to give customers a choice so they can get the product they need and we can keep offering incredible low prices. Below is some information on common video formats and how they compare.

Format specifications:

720p HD: 1280 x 720
HDV 1080: 1440 x 1080 (effective resolution is same as 1080p)
1080p HD: 1920 x 1080
2K: 2048 x 1152

Basically 2k is a little bit larger than 1080p but they are very similar for the most part. The 2k version is about 2.5 times larger than 720p in resolution but remember that some elements like a muzzle flash wont actually be “full frame” so even the 720p version could be more than enough resolution for your 1080p project since certain elements will probably be scaled down. Of course the 2K version really gives you a lot of flexibility with framing elements in HD , especially if you needs things to be larger and crisp.
Check out the chart.

BTW, the files are not going to ‘kill’ your computer either, you will actually find them to be quite robust in both formats. Remember 2k is just slightly larger than 1080p.

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
