Hi Folks,

I’ve been absent from Videohive for a loong time and now I’ve got both time and ideas to develop some new templates.
I was thinking about switching to 4k resolution but I’m not quite sure yet…

Could you give me some advice on few topics? Here’s what I would like to know,

  1. When delivering a 4k template, do you also offer a standard 1080p version?
  2. if that’s the case, do you just make a 1080p comp and scale down the 4k animation or do you rescale every element down in a duplicated project?
  3. Do you still use 24,25,30 fps on a 4k template?
  4. Are older versions of After Effects (CS6 CC2012) capable of rendering 4k?
  5. Is it still worth to develop template with such old versions yway?

Any other tips?

Thanks to everyone in advance,
Federico

I will try to give you some answers:

  1. Yes
  2. I’m offering 4k native resolution with all elements and just a new scaled down pre-comp for 1080p
  3. 4k @60 fps
  4. Yes
  5. That is *Million Dollars Question and no one knows the answer

  1. You may not believe but there are people who still works on cs4 :slight_smile:

Thanks for the answers!

About point n°2… Don’t you think that by just scaling down the final 4k comp to 1080p you would have the same rendering times?

What I mean is, if somebody isn’t still using 4k there’s a chance that the hardware he’s using is not capable of working with such high resolutions. Would this person still be alble to use the template correctly?

Thanks again guys!

1080p is some kind of standard for today’s modern computers. Apple produce iMac’s with 5k monitors. I doubt that they are not capable to drive 4k resolution. The major problem with 4k is that they are not yet standard in TV broadcast industry, but in a few years they will be. In the meantime you have a chance to offer your product to 4k consumers (youtube, film industry etc…)
