1050 is the new 1024

Some eagle eyes may have noticed that the preset sizes for pal compositions in After effects CS4 have changed from what we have been used to for a long time.

Our understading for a long time was that full widescreen 16:9 (square pixels) images/compositions should have 1024 pixels horizontally and regular 4:3 (square pixels) should be 768 pixels. the BBC have suggested that "digital pictures are effectively wider than analogue pictures" and have suggested these new figures are more correct; 768 becomes 788 and 1024 becomes 1050.
There is a comprehensive explanation and graphic guides on the BBCs website here..
