Alternate Resolutions

I know that most of us are sticklers for quality - this probably isn’t the greatest option for quality alone. However, for compress-ability and space saving, I thought I’d share that I’ve found 2 resolutions that work great for backing things up.

For SD, I’ve begun using 672x504. This uses close to the same number of pixels as NTSC uses in 720x480.
The resolution itself is 4x3, so requires no stretching for full frame. In addition, using a PAR of 4x3, you get a 16x9 image of 896x504.

For HD, I’ve begun using 1152x864. This uses a similar number of pixels to 1280x720.

HEVC works exceptionally well at these resolutions.

Some people call them Force Ghosts. I call them Midichlorian Swarms.
