huh?....All different sizes?

It's either 1080 HD, 720 HD or SD. Period. As was said.....TV size is completely irrelevant.

sorry not sure what you mean.
if you are creating a movie for a standard full HD TV then you need to render it at 1920x1080

The size of the screen does not indicate the resolution. I think that is your confusion.

Your best bet is just the render it to a targa sequence and then put it togther in after effects or premiere or similar editing program. What are you planning on using to play the animation back? Bluray?

DVD is standard def 720x576 in the UK not HD so it makes no difference how big you make the render it will always be converted down. You're probably getting your pixel aspect ratios wrong if they look stretched

ok to make this simple I would like to render an animation for a customer that would be played back on a 52" HD visio. This doesn't mean I will make an hd video what would make my picture look normal.

The size of the screen means literally nothing when considering output resolution.

1920 x 1080 will is the best quality animation/render you will get on a HD TV. Render at that.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.
