Goal: I'd like to upscale a recording from a 1680 x 1050 (16:10 aspect ratio), 2010 Macbook Pro screen to 1920 x 1080 (16:9) for 'best-try' upload to a variety of target platforms (FB, YT, Vimeo etc).
Note: thanks to the crap graphics chip ('Black Screen of Death' NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M) on this laptop model, I cannot attach an external monitor.
Clearly, the largest 16:9 aspect ratio video I can natively capture on this screen is 1680 x 945, making the scaling to be applied = 1920 / 1680, or approximately 1.14 times the original.
Not bad, but taking a step back for a moment, am I at the time of recording truly stuck with 1680 x 945 (16:9) max, or are there other options in the pursuit of a 1920 x 1080 end result?
- Would (for example) ffmpeg allow original recording at a resolution larger than the native screen size? (conceivable, as all user interaction is in the middle of the screen, the remainder simply providing visual context).
- Can I otherwise trick my laptop into thinking it has a 1920 x 1080 screen attached?
- is there some other possibility I should be aware of?
If you see a practical approach to a native 1920 x 1080 recording, some detail (for example ffmpeg command) would be helpful.
