Pushing Pixels

Here's a couple of resources I use on regular basis to help keep all those resolutions, aspect ratios, and data rates straight.


Pixel Aspect Ratio Calculator - If you know the aspect ratio you need (16:9, 16:10, 4:3) and at least one variable of width (W) or height (H) this can help you calculate the other variable.

Bandwidth Conversion Calculator - Mbps vs. MBs

Format Resolution Table - can't remember the dimesions or aspect ratio of 35MM Full Academy vs. 35mm VistaVision...well forget no longer.
