  1. Resolution/Aspect Ratio:

    1. 1920x1080(1.78:1-16x9,HD),

    2. 1998X1080 (1.85:1 flat), or

    3. 2048X858(2.39:1scope).

    4. If you have a film in 1.66:1 or 1.37:1 or another non standard

      ratio, please contact us.

  2. 23.98fps, 24fps, or 30fps. Please only send files that are progressive

    scan. Interlace files will look degraded and have a ghostly frame

    blending.

  4. Please put three seconds of black at the beginning of your film and at

    the end.
