Video material must be submitted in 4:3 aspect with a maximum resolution of 640 x 480. If you wish to create 16:9 or other wide format films then you will need to letterbox them into the 4:3 format.

The Animation and Short Film categories require uploading of video in the same format supported in CGPortfolio: http://wiki.cgsociety.org/index.php/Help:CGUploader

http://features.cgsociety.org/images/spacer.gif
• FLV Encoder http://www.digitalgroover.com/flvencoder/ (Windows / free)

• Sorenson Squeeze http://www.sorensonmedia.com/ (Windows/Mac / Licence)

Download one of these and encode your video - Videos need to be encoded with a screen ratio of 4:3, common resolutions would be 640x480 or 320x240. The higher the bitrate you use the more space your animation will require. The CGChallenge Uploader is available here.


Images
http://features.cgsociety.org/images/spacer.gif
All image submissions must be in JPG or PNG format. The final image for the Illustration category must be in both JPG (or PNG), and TIF format (at a print-resolution of no less than 300dpi).

Final Illustration Image Size
http://features.cgsociety.org/images/spacer.gif
Your final image dimensions should be in print resolution (as large as you can possibly render). Do not send in a low-resolution placeholder and ask us to get back to you, as we won't.

A guideline is 2657 pixels wide and/or 3636 high, 300 DPI (portrait), or 3636 pixels wide and/or 2657 pixels high, 300 DPI (landscape). Your image aspect ratio and layout will dictate the final resolution. These are given as guidelines. To be safe, render images that are larger than these specified.

DO NOT up-sample your images to achieve higher resolution. If you cannot reach the desired full-page resolution, just send in what you have.

Information about the final file submission will be emailed to all contestants in the last month of the Challenge.
