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 scene. For example, if the scene width and height are the same value, this ratio equals 1. The standard aspect ratio for widescreen televisions is 1.777. For legacy displays, it is 1.333.

Field of View

Horizontal Fit

Adjusts the image's size so that its width matches the scene's width, without affecting its aspect ratio.

Vertical Fit

Adjusts the image's size so that its height matches the scene's height, without affecting its aspect ratio.

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

The amount of frames in your scene that should play out every second. The standard framerate for film production is 24 fps. However, televisions in some countries play at 25 fps.
