Exporting with Ulead in 720p

There are three ways to export with Ulead in 720p, from which none is ideal, but hey…

Method 1:
Set the project properties to HDV or HD before you attempt any exports by following the first three images from this guide. IF your source footage is NTSC (30fps) and IF you are using “VideoStudio 11 Plus” instead of the “MediaStudio Pro 8” version, then you can just use the fourth image to export (this file is compatible with Vimeo HD and XboX360). But if you are on “Pro” or you require a different frame rate instead, then use this guide (compatible with Vimeo HD and PS3).

Method 2:
Also, there is another way to export, which is the same for both Pro and Plus versions, but it requires the installation of the XViD codec. Install it from here, load your Ulead application, set the HD project settings as mentioned above, edit, and then export like this (compatible with Vimeo HD).

The only changes you might need to do is to select either PAL’s 25 fps instead of the suggested NTSC’s 29.97 frame rate, or 23.976 if you shot in 24p mode. If you shot in default mode with an NTSC camera, leave the frame rate unchanged. Finally, uncheck de-interlacing if your footage is not interlaced.

Why don’t you go for full hd (1080i)? Why are most lcd tvs 1366 by 720, and not full hd? I have noticed that most computer screens have a 1050 resolution, why not 1080? All this is very confusing to me. I know full hd is the most expensive.

Because there is no point uploading a 1080p file to vimeo, as vimeo is 720p. It would be a waste of bandwidth and time. These tutorials are mainly for vimeo.

As for the PC and TV resolutions, they are different because the standards were designed by different organizations. If you want the best of both worlds in terms of compatibility then you need a 1920×1200 PC monitor.

The highest resolution pc monitor I can find is 1920×1050. Or am I looking at the wrong place?

There are PC monitors at 1920×1200. They cost over $350 here in US.
