I always get confused about film sizes so is there a rule of thumb to go by, or a way of calculating the ratio between width and height?
I hate these nnn x 272 formats as it's like looking through a postbox when played on my tv, but then this appears to be the norm nowadays!
Anyway, I have two of the same film, not yet burnt to disk, one is 720 x 304 and the other is 700 x 292.
What one, if any, will give the better height when played back on the tv?
Thanks

You won't see any difference :thumbsup:
First ratio is 2.36, the 2nd one is 2.39

Actually, there is. The problem usually lies with the person who created the film sizes. Those are cropped and one of them is resized. Standard NTSC film is 720x480 frame size.

The videos you have most likely cropped out the black borders as it is a waste to encode black space with a video.
