I was quite pleased to see that the fan trailer I made for an (at the time) non-existent ‘Green Lantern’ movie has been picked up by The Times for a story about the real Green Lantern film that’s due to start shooting in September.

Seems the latest version of After Effects from Adobe (CS4) has changed the PAL D1/DV Widescreen square pixel preset.
In CS3, compositions using that preset would be set to 1024 x 576 pixels. The new version (CS4) uses 1050 x 576.
So which is right? 1024 or 1050?
Well, to begin with, it’s all a bit complicated. I can still remember when it was first explained to me many years ago when I was still at the BBC, and it’s the kind of thing that’s quite difficult to get your head around without drawing little pictures on the back of envelopes. Anyway, there’s a few resources out there that try to explain this (links included below) – but I thought I’d have a go myself.
