I'm exporting MOVs from Flash, then converting them to mp4 with Handbrake. The video will scale to the screen size, but I would prefer it to scale down, rather than scale up. So, what are the maximum/optimum/best pixel width and height of a MOV/mp4 for iphones? Or, to take it a step back in the process, what are the pixel dimensions I should set for my Flash document (which is then exported to MOV at 1:1)? PS: I know iphone screen sizes have changed with each new iphone, and screen sizes come in points, rendered pixels, physical pixels and physical devices. But hopefully in the end there's max X-px x Y-px. (I asked this over at Video Production, but no answers)

  • Instead of cross-posting please flag the original post (on Video Production) for mod attention and have one of the mods there migrate it to Ask Different. Then please delete this one here. – nohillside Aug 4 '17 at 10:22
  • @patrix, OK, have asked. Hopefully, it will appear here as a new question and not dated 26 June. – plugincontainer Aug 4 '17 at 11:21
  • It will keep the date AFAIK but show up as a new question anyway – nohillside Aug 4 '17 at 12:28
  • I think you need to figure out what you are asking before I can migrate it over. I think part of the problem with the original question is that you are kind of bouncing between "what is the best resolution for the video" and then bouncing to "what is the highest resolution used by any iphone to date". The former question is on topic for Video Production and doesn't seem likely to be on topic for Ask Different. The later is not on topic for video production (which is likely why it got no answers) and is certainly on topic for Ask Different. – AJ Henderson Aug 4 '17 at 15:59
