format the boards for HD protecting for 4:3??

Recommended Posts

not to be a douche, but it depends on if you are going 720, or 1080. And, if you make boards actual size, or just 960x540.

 

take your frame height. Divide that by 3. Multiply that by 4. That is your width. Multiply that by 80%, and that is your 4:3 Title safe area.

 

so...for example: for 1920x1080 boards, your 4:3 frame would be 1440:1080. Your title safe area would be 1152x864.

I think they mean to design at normal HD, but make sure that the action and type is safe for 4:3 display

I second that.

I wish they would switch to letterbox in these instances :/

 

Agreed; that's always what I recommend if people bother to ask. This whole idea of creating a design to fit two different aspect ratios, while common, is a pain in the ass and takes away half the reason for HD in the first place.
