I’d go with 1080p. With 4K becoming increasingly popular, it doesn’t make sense to produce projects at 720p anymore. Plus, I feel that taking the time to create a 1080p project gives your customers more options, instead of simply trying to save yourself a few hours by creating a 720p project.

Let it render overnight or over the weekend! It can’t be that bad can it?

1080p always. I have only one 720p project because I used stabilized footage and downscale was a must in that case to keep the quality.
I don’t agree with this: “It depends on what your project is going to be.”
We never know where final product will be used, from web banners to big screens.

True, but then again you can make a rough estimation on what your item is going to be used for out of common sense. I aim to create templates used for online activities only, people are free to us them anywhere else of course.

Anyway, my latest After Effects template is primarily to be used through online video services such as youtube/vimeo and yet it does come in 4k resolution, and that’s just to be future proof.

So maybe I want to alter my initial statement here and say you have to go with 1080p, doru :)

The best of all is when client contact me for project customization and insist on full hd, but he send me images something like 320×240, or raster logo in 100×100px :D

I’ve been there to. One time, a client sent in a 250×250 preview image which needed to be displayed on full screen(1080), the client insisted to use this image and had no alternative. I scaled it up and said “Hello Pixels!”.

I’ve never heard of him again.

@InlifeThrill your project Over The Edge – 3D is 1280×720 and it still has very nice sales. Can you tell me if buyers asked you for a FullHD resolution of that project

Every day. :)

Go full!

is not that bad, managed to reduce the render time to around 1 minute x frame. Before was around 5 minutes

so now for 30 seconds video should be 15 -17 hours of render.

I just had a doubt of why should I lose time on fullHD when there’s that 720p project that sells anyway.

Thank You everybody :) I’m convinced, I will go with 1080p and hope for the best.


Every day. :) Go full!

thank you! :) that’s the definitive argument, FullHD it is then.

i think if the 720p is going to end, the upload size limitation has to be changed too! i myself had this problem on my new project which is still in review queue … if i wanted to go for FullHD, the size of the project would go above 1 gb! now it is 675mb in HD!

I don’t think we’re going to see much in the way of 4K motion graphics in the near future. It requires a lot more computing power – and there are currently few monitors or TVs that can display 4K, no media that can save 4K (DVD/Blu-ray style) and no TV channels that broadcast 4K. Until some or all of those things happen, I can’t see it.

Generally, even footage that is shot at 4K is posted at 2K or HD.

In my experience, only feature film is regularly doing it at 4K at the moment.

Maybe give it 5 or 6 years.

I’d think twice about buying a 720p project.
