Hi all,

I'm gonna shoot a "trailer/promo" project soon on Super35 in 3perf with the 435 Extreme.

My question: what's the best groundglass (ANSI or DIN?) and what should we frame for if we want to:
- put the trailer on the web (in 1080p HD)
- telecine to 1080p (16:9)
- DVD release 16:9

Hope someone can help me with this, I can't seem to find the right groundglass on the Arri website:

Thanks a lot for the help,
Best

Out of those choices, you'd use the ANSI Super-35 TV 1.78 / 1.33 (3-perf) groundglass.

3-perf Full Aperture is already 16:9 (1.78) but HDTV broadcast would be slightly inside that, but you'd want to protect Full Aperture when shooting since there is so little difference between that and the 16:9 TV frame inside.

You could also use a DIN Super-35 3-perf 1.85 groundglass -- 1.85 is very close to 1.78 -- as long as you protected the Full Aperture.

That clarified a lot David,
Thank you very much!
