    I am wanting to setup a project thats an extremely wide format 10x1 , for a outdoor display.

    Cropping my Ursa mini 4.6k down, I realise the resolution is going to take a hit. I am pretty new to resolve.

    What settings do I do in resolve with the project/ timeline? There doesn't seem to be a 4.6k pull down option for the timeline. I want to make the most of this resolution if I can.

    Can someone help me with the steps?

    Also, what if I add my DJI X5R raw footage at 4k into this timeline, will it be upsized to the 4.6k?

    Cheers Paul

    1. Select custom timeline and enter the dimensions of your desired 10:1 window. 4600X460ish

    2. Under image scaling select center crop with no resizing.

    If you follow step 2 then the DJI footage will have to be manually resized.

    You may want to find out what the actual delivery spec is. I do this kind of stuff all the time and typically what happens is that the 10-1 box is just one element that lives on the raster there may be lots of other junk in various pips. You want to deliver in as close to the desired spec as possible to make sure your imagery looks the way you want.

    Good Luck

    Thanks heaps for this Howie.

    I am contacting the dealer of the large screen in the next few days, ill ask about the exact specs. I am just playing in resolve with some test footage I have taken. I am finding that is very hard to do a decent composition with that crazy format, so I am considering shooting with some split screen as well mixed up with it.

    Think of it as an excuse to pick up some 2x anamorphics.

    best pratice is to set your timeline to match the prime deliverable
    first step is to get those spec's from your delivery partner
    if scaleing is really important then Reslove is not really the best choice anyway, something with lancos + variable filtering like Baselight, Flame, Nucoda, Smoke, Mystika, Luster offer more and better choices
