I’m about to get my super 16mm footage scanned in. Just want to confirm what aspect ratio I should ask for, for the transfer to be in?
My output will be blu ray 16:9 (so 1.77). I know Super 16 is 1.66. My key thing is to ensure that there is max detail and resolution in the frame – i.e. the information captured by the scanner properly fills the 16:9 frame, so I don’t have to crop or “zoom in” to fill it – resulting in less resolution and probably lower picture quality.
Could you help me with this please folks? Its being done on a Spirit in HD.
