Hello Liao,

Corping the image to save the storage, I feel its not good way to go.

As we know for
4 perf source, res should be 2048x1556,
3 perf source, res should be 2048x1168,

Better to maintain above res though out the DI workflow and set parameters
in the film recorder with the image process and output geomentry.

Hi Liao

Are you sure that they won't reposition some shots while colour grading?
The amount of times a director shoots something for a specific aspect ratio
and actually manages to keep ALL of his or her shots intact without repo is
seldom (but that's from personal experience).
