View Full Version : Rendering for Blue Ray

If your final intended output is for Blue Ray but you also wanted to output for web download; would you render at 24p, 30p, 60p?

I'm not sure I've got this right, but BlueRay can play back 60p right? Now is that 60p half height for 1080i display or ... sigh can someone point me in the right direction to figure this out?

I was thinking of starting to output everything at 1280x720 24p but after years of animating at 30fps the strobing that 24 adds just looks bad to me.

What do you guys think?

I think it depends on the look you're going for. 24 will have more of a film look to the motion, but if you don't like that then that might not be the way to go.

It also depends if you're matching any source footage and what frame rate/res that is too...

Since Blue Ray is just a format for delivering HD on a DVD. I would think that it follows the HD format.

Here are some links.
