Which Video size is right for my project?

4K has become the standard for digital television and is quickly becoming the standard for film. We recommend using 4K clips for any products like TV, film, large projections and displays, etc.

HD will provide high quality and sharp definition for many video projects where quality needs to be high but 4K is not yet available.

SD and web are mostly used for projects where the video won't fill the screen--web videos on corporate sites, motion graphic web ads, etc. The Web size is fairly small so you might want to purchase the SD if you're not sure which size best suits your project.
