Kodak Introduces Mobile Aspect Ratio App for Filmmakers
ROCHESTER, NY, March 8, 2013 — A new Aspect Ratio app is now available as part of the KODAK Cinema Tools application. This suite of apps from Kodak can be downloaded for free from iTunes. The Aspect Ratio App lets filmmakers see how different aspect ratios affect a shot. It allows filmmakers to select a photo from their device and overlay it with 2-perf, 3-perf, 4-perf and 16mm motion picture film formats and popular aspect ratios.
The KODAK Cinema Tools App also includes:
- Lab Locator: Find a lab or transfer house while on the go! Using a current location and selecting the service needed, the Lab Locator tool will find a service provider nearby and provide contact information as well as a map. The tool also provides the ability to search other locations by filling out the search form.
- Sun Calculator: Helps filmmakers take the guesswork out of capturing sunrise and sunset scenes.
- Film Calculator: Information can be entered into fields where data is known: format, length, run time and frame rate. The app then calculates and supplies the other variables. Film length can be measured in feet or meters.
- Depth of Field Calculator: Help filmmakers determine the settings they need to get the focus they want. The app is designed to be used with any film format, including Super 8, 16, 35 and 65 mm. F-stops range from F1.4 – F22, with 1/3 stops included.
