Easily mix and match different aspect ratios in the same project with drag & drop ease!
Most of the time we edit in an HD or 4K UHD 16x9 aspect ratio that most cameras shoot in (smartphones or traditional cameras) - but often we'll mix in wide-screen anamorphic or even vertical video into that same project (and want to mix and match shots). And other times we just want to letterbox 16x9 footage to give it a more cinematic look.
That's where our new Aspect Ratio Overlays Pack comes into play. It offers a quick and easy solution for these scenarios.
Simply drag & drop the PNG files on a layer above any footage and you instantly have the correct letterboxed aspect ratio. No guessing with a crop or any other kind of effect.
Included in the pack:
1080 HD (1.33, 1.66, 1.85, 2.00, 2.35, 2.37, 2.39, 2.40, Vertical 9x16)
2K (1.33, 1.66, 1.85, 2.00, 2.35, 2.37, 2.39, 2.40, Vertical 9x16)
4K UHD (1.33, 1.66, 1.85, 2.00, 2.35, 2.37, 2.39, 2.40, Vertical 9x16)
4K DCI (1.33, 1.66, 1.78, 1.85, 2.00, 2.35, 2.37, 2.39, 2.40, Vertical 9x16)

Just like with our LUT Packs, we created this product to solve a problem. We routinely needed to letterbox footage but didn't have an easy (or precise) way of doing it. Sure, you can crop and guess at the sizes, but that's not ideal (and it's tedious). So, we put these together to help on our projects and now hopefully they will help on your projects as well. :)
