    So I'm working on a shoot where the client wants to use the video for TV, youtube and FB/IG ads (16x9, 9x16, 3x4, and 1x1)

    They are shooting in 4k. But whats the best approach for this? Shoot twice, once in landscape and another with the camera rotated 90?

    Or shoot once with 9x16 guides and crop in for the landscape?

    For background the shoot is in multiple locations of ppl receiving gifts or opening packages at home.

    In an ideal world, you would be framing your main 16:9 shots in such a way that doing your 9:16, 3:4, and 1:1 masters would be relatively painless.

    The reason is that you want to re-use the same footage, instead of going through the hassle re-framing and re-shooting (and also risking that your other takes for other formats aren't nearly as good as the main shoot).

    It's shit, but it really is the most effective solution.

    (But, why 3:4, though? I thought FB was 1:1 ... )

    • Also: time is money, and multiple re-shoots based on output format is really costly and time-consuming.Continuity

    • Because the ads can run on both FB and IG it can be 1350x1080 or 1080x1080err
