Hey guys! I Was hoping for some advice on a project I'm about to get started on. I will be shooting some 16mm and super 8 footage on unmodified gate cameras (4:3) The plan is to incorporate this footage with 16:9 footage in a 1080 timeline and I'm wondering what my options are for scanning/cropping the film for the hd widescreen aspect ratio with the best resulting image quality and without distorting/stretching the image. Is there a way to avoid a crop altogether with a method of scan that resizes the 4:3 footage to 16:9?
Is there a way I should frame the shot within the viewfinder with a horizontal crop in mind?
I live in Arizona. Where would be the best place to have my film scanned/framed? Should I scan the film at the same resolution as the video? (1080) or should I go for the 2k overscan option so I have some extra room to frame myself?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm obviously very confused as this will be a new undertaking for me
