Achieving CinemaScope or other 'ultra' widescreen ratios in 2022?
I've recently learned about odder aspect ratios in cinema used in the past, and want to use it in future videos. CinemaScope is being a more well known technique and these aspect ratios were closer to or about 2.4:1, instead of a 16:9 or even a 21:9.
Is this something that can be done in 2022, without expensive pro cameras or finding and using old Hollywood tech? It doesn't necessarily need to be 2.4:1 precisely, but something more than 21:9.
I can easily add black bars to 16:9 in HitFilm, but that's real cheap and you'll be able to see through the effect easily.
Apparently, some of the techniques back then would use two cameras on the same rig and stitched them together in editing. If its as simple as taking two identical smart phones or point-and-clicks to a single rig, perfectly leveled, then is there a simple way in HitFilm that layers the two 16:9 video tracks over each other to make a wider aspect ratio? My concern would be lining up the same details on top of each other perfectly.
Also, I understand that I'd likely still have to export the final film in 16:9 for Youtube and video players.
