16x9 ANA Mode SXT

Tue May 11, 2021 4:08 pm

Hey everybody,
just wondering if it's possible to set the Alexa SXT to the 16x9 ANA Mode that the Alexa Mini offers. I'm planning on shooting a TV Pilot on 2x Anamorphics while framing for 16x9.

Dear Christian,

it is not exactly the same mode, but SXT also offers anamoprhic modes:

ALEXA SXT "2K Anamorphic" uses
2560 x 2146 >> 2048 x 858 (downscale and 2.0 squeeze)

Which comes closest to ALEXA Mini's HD Anamorphic Mode (2.0 squeeze):
1920x2160 >> 1920x1080

ALEXA SXT "4K Cine Anamorphic" uses
2560 x 2146 >> 4096 x 1716, so a 4K file.

Details on ALL our sensor formats can be found here: Formats and Resolutions Overview
