Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using video templates in Illustrator, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology.
- Just like how Adobe Photoshop offers templates,…you'll find a similar implementation in Adobe Illustrator.…This'll make it easy to get the correctly sized graphics.…Simply choose File New.…And then from the Profile, choose Video and Film.…You'll find a series of presets under the Size category.…Note, they're organized in a similar way to Adobe Photoshop,…although the names don't line up exactly.…For example, if I choose the HDV 1080 option,…you'll see it's 1920x1080.…
If I choose DVCPROHD,…it's also 1920x1080.…You might be wondering if there's different names,…why aren't the pixel dimensions different?…Well, that's because Adobe Illustrator…does not support non-square pixels.…You'll need to design with the full rastor,…or square pixel dimensions.…So, for example with HD,…it's really 1920x1080, or 1280x720.…So no matter which preset you pick from these HD categories,…you're either gonna end up with 1280x720 for a 720p project,…or 1920x1080 for a 1080 project.…
But these do work pretty well.…There's also presets for 2K and 4K productions,…
