Aspect Ratio Pack

Don't waste anymore time calculating aspect ratio bars for your project. Easily drag and drop these cinematic aspect ratio overlays into your production to quickly give your piece that cinematic film look

When working with video most of the time you are going to be editing in a 16×9 aspect ratio. But sometimes you’ll need to edit in a different aspect ratio. You can do this simply by adjusting the size of your composition, but there will be times where your output video file needs to be the common aspect of 16×9. This Cinematic Aspect Ratio Pack is a perfect drag and drop solution that can be imported into any Non-linear editing suite or visual effects software and then dropped onto your full resolution footage to create various cinematic framings.

What is an Aspect Ratio?

The aspect ratio is an image projection attribute that describes the relationship between the width of an image to the height and determines the quality, dimensions and size of your video or image. It’s written as a figure like this: width:height (width always comes first) so 4:3 (also written as 1.33) and 16:9 (also called 1.78). Far more interesting than the difference between each picture ratio is the history of how all these different ratios became widely used in the first place. In short, the movie industry began shooting on wider range anamorphic lenses that gave the footage a much wider and shorter look, so to this day, we associate a wider image ratio with video and film that feels more cinematic.
