I've converted to a quicktime file with a ratio of 240x320. I was just curious what everybody else is using, since this is my first time.

480 x 250 over here....

Marlon, do you mean 320 (width) x 240 (height)?

I don't know. I think it's 320 height and 240 width.

Do you still check the "constrain the aspect ratio" box to 16x9? No matter what?

This might be a dumb question, but I shot in "squeeze" mode on the DVX, so where does the 16x9 ratio that they requested actually come in to play? I thought it was when you converted the file.

I'm not familiar with the squeeze mode on the DVX.
But your resolution will look like a box (see below), not 16:9

Unless you stretch it or crop it.

Okay, so what exactly do they mean when they say 16x9 or 2.35? When does that come into play?

For example, my aspect ratio is widescreen. (480 by 250)

See below....

Mine is 853x480 since I uprezzed to anamorphic and used Quicktime's 16:9 export in size options.

Wait. I think i need to re-encode. Ha!

Thanks, guys. I hope I did it right. My ratios (I've got diff. versions) are different from all of yours, but I'm about to upload, so we'll see.

I think I just uploaded with the small size (I had several diff. versions) at the best resolution - 320x240. I'll probably definately go bigger next time.
