Best camera configs for HD videos

Post by walkero » Mon Jan 27, 2020 12:28 am

Hello again guys,
Can you share, based on your experience, the best camera configurations for saving RGB frame images for 720p or 1080p videos? What exactly should we set there to make our video look great?

Hi Walkero,

In Lightwave Layout, go to Camera tab.
Check the Custom Size box and the Custom Resolution
fields will become editable. You set your custom resolution there e.g. 1280 x 720.

Did it help?

Yeah. Except that change, are there any other configs you recommend to set? For example, what antializing do you recommend to use? Is there a difference on using high and low ones?

Well, it depends on what you're trying to achieve.
Antialising set to Low should cover most static image needs. Use higher according to taste if you are looking for a smoother result.

If there 's motion involved, Low might look inadequate but again, adjust to your taste.

Depth-Of-Field requires at least Medium, I use Enhanced High when I 'm doing the final renders.

The trade off is rendering time, so keep that in mind when increasing Antialias passes

Update: Sampling Threshold can save you lots of time for static images, so use that, too. The lower the value, the better the result. 8 to 16 should be fine.
