Hi All - 

 

This question is in regards to DCPs only - Flat DCPs and Scope DCPs only - only need to know about Flat and Scope DCPs.

 

A little context: As you may know, for Digital Cinema naming, "F" is for Flat (1.85) in the Content Title Text and "S" is for Scope (2.39) in the content title text.

 

Flat DCP ("F") at 2K is 1998 X 1080

Scope DCP ("S") at 2K is 2048 X 858

 

However, if the Active Image Area does not match the container resolution (i.e. the screen is pillar boxed or letter boxed), then you add a modifier to the content title text.

 

For example, "F-133" means the active image area (the "action" on the screen) is 1:33 while the container is Flat, so this is 1:33 of "action" within 1998 X 1080.

 

I need to know the following... How do I translate these modifiers in a Content Title Text into dimensions (in the fomat of "# X #", i.e. 1998 X 1080). I've found some answers on other forums, but not all that I need for my research.

 

According to other forums, for FLAT DCPs, you have the following.

 

"F-133" at 2K is 1440 X 1080

"F-166" at 2K is 1792 X 1080

 

Are the above correct?

 

Can someone confirm these are correct? Also, is someone able to fill in the blanks for those I am unable to find below?

 

F-175 at 2K

F-178 at 2K

F-120 at 2K

F-166 at 4K

F-177 at 2K

F-220 at 2K

F-220 at 4K

F-137 at 2K

F-137 at 4K

F-170 at 2K

 

Also looking for a few dimensions for Scope as well.

 

S-255 at 2K

S-235 at 2K

 

Many thanks if you have any of the following dimensions.

 

Best,

Rory
