Hi Folks;

Time to show that I'm a newbie again. Is there any kind of a HD terms FAQ? I'm still new at all this and the terms sometimes through me off. I've looked around here on the site and can't find a specific HD FAQ.

The reason for looking for a FAQ right now, is the discussion of various screen sizes and what they mean. For example: What is 16x9? What is anemorphic? What is 1.35 to 1? etc.

I'm sure these questions have been asked and answered before, but I couldn't find any links to a FAQ or a topic that covered this kind of thing.

Many thanks for your help

Craig

Often when I'm chasing down a technical term with a google.com search I encounter numerous glosseries. Generally, if you go to search sites and enter some of the terms you've listed, you'll get lots of choices. -- John

Many thanks David. I'm not looking to increase your workload any. I love these forums. I was thinking / hoping something like this already existed.

many thanks for your help and the forums.
