Aspect ratio: relationship between the width and height of the frame.
Resolution: number of pixels displayed by width and height
Frame rate: speed at which individual frames or images are shown, usually measured per second (this rate depends on the type of video you are creating)
High-definition (HD) video with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a resolution of 1920p. x 1080p. is the preferred format for our library videos.
H.264 is the video coding format for HD video. In most cases, the H.264 video will be saved as an MP4 file.
This guide is meant to supplement the Video Guidelines and Best Practices document, included below and posted in the Library Videos Channel of the AllStaff Team on MSTeams. UCF Libraries videos are hosted on our UCF Libraries Vimeo channel, and you can request a video to be added to Vimeo by completing the form in the Library Videos Channel on the AllStaff Team. Other resources, including templates, are included in the Team files. Feel free to put any questions or comments about UCF Libraries' videos in the "Posts" section of the Teams channel.
Use the UCF Libraries Vimeo search page to see all publicly posted videos and search by keyword. You can also browse collections of videos using the Showcases link.
Here are a few questions to consider when planning your video.
