Hello,

I will be shooting a short film in 1.33 and would like to know what the best practices would be regarding the DCP mastering.
I found the standard 1.85 and 2.39 resolutions for a DCP, and the obvious solution for a 1.33 DCP would be to letterbox it, but I would like to keep as much resolution as possible. Is there a 1.33 standard resolution for a 2K or 4K DCP which would avoid letterboxing?

Thanks

You can have any format you want as long as the height is 1080 pixels OR the width is 2048.

Exactly. 2K flat is 1998x1080 and 2K scope is 2048x858. Double those resolutions for 4K finishes.

I'd go for full height and then pad (pillar box) the sides. Full container DCPs (2048x1080 or 4096x2160) are compliant.

Does anyone know how The Artist was distributed for 1.37:1 projection?

That's would be a 1436x1080 in HD, 2048x1540 in 2K and 4096*3080 in 4K.

Thanks !

Can't have 2048x1540 in 2K since the height must be 1080 (for DCP).

Use DCI compliant, 2K flat: 1998*1080 (1,85) with your 1440*1080 (1,33) video inside and two 279 pixels black bars on each side.
Then you can make your DCP.
