Parameter Description

Resolution Name

This is name you give the custom resolution. Your new resolution will appear in the Camera Size menu of both the New Project window and Welcome screen.

Resolution

Width

This is the width of the resolution that will be created.

Height

This is the height of the resolution that will be created.

Aspect Ratio

Displays the ratio between the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the camera framing. Each resolution setting has a preset aspect ratio that cannot be changed.

Field of View

Horizontal Fit

Enlarges or shrinks (but not distort) to your image height to match the full width of the scene frame (alignment grid).

Vertical Fit

Enlarges or shrinks (but not distort) to your image height to match the full height of the scene frame (alignment grid).

Custom Fov

After selecting this option, enter a value, in degrees, of the angle that you want the camera cone to be. Increasing this value will make the camera cone wider (the angle is more obtuse). Widening the FOV will make the grid and all elements appear farther away. Decreasing the default value will create the opposite effect.

Frame Rate

Preset

Frames per Second

Sets the frame rate for your project. The higher the frame rate, for example 30 fps, the faster the animation will play. The lower the frame rate, for example 12 fps, the slower your animation will play. Avoid going under 12 frames per second as your animation will have a choppy playback. The human eye requires a minimum of 12 frames per second to perceive a fluid animation.
