Left-field question but there's so many teams shooting with cinematic framing in mind now would 1920x800 be accepted for resolution? It would be pretty amazing if we could actually get scope heats :)

Hey steelpotato - there's no rule saying you can't deliver 1920 x 800 in a 1920x1080 container with black bars top and bottom. I imagine in practice most of the heats playback software would treat a 1920 x 800 file correctly - but it's one more pain in the ass for organizers if something goes wrong so way better to have everything exactly matched to the same standard.

Certainly no one's going to be reframing a projector during a heat to make the aspect wider, so you are left with black bars top and bottom either way it goes.
