How to convert 1K to 2K resolution? And why do people hope to convert 1K to 2K resolution? What are the differences between 1K and 2K videos? You will find answers from the article below.
The answer is that 2K resolution is bigger in size and provides a better visual experience than 1K videos. 2K video allows for zooming in and capturing extra detail while displaying on a large screen. A 2K resolution video should have a sharper color and image quality than a video at a lower resolution.
When people talk about 2K, they refer to resolutions of 2048 x 1152, 2048 x 1536, and 2560 x 1440. While a standard 1K resolution refers to 1024 x 768 pixels. And the Full HD 1080P is close to 2K with resolutions of 1920×1080.
2K resolution is also known as a “cinema resolution” due to its high resolution. And visually, 2K is superior to 1K and 1080P.
To convert a 1K video to 2K, you can either use RecMaster or a video converter.
RecMaster is a super-easy 2K screen recorder and converter. You can easily convert 1K videos to 2K resolution with the steps below.
1. Download and install RecMaster.
2. Set your Computer Display to a size wider than 2048 and higher than 1080.
3. Choose Custom Mode in RecMaster and drag to choose an area of 2048*1080, 2048*1536, or 2560*1440.
You can drag the edges to make it exactly the size.
3. Play the 1K or the 1080P Full HD video and drag it into the middle of the recording area. You can drag the edge of the player to adjust.
The 2K resolution is wider than 1K, so you can either keep the black bars on the two vertical sides or cut the horizontal sides of the video.
4. Enable the System Sound to record the audio of the 1K video, and disable the Microphone to avoid recording noises around you.
5. Press the REC button to start the countdown and start playing the 1K video at the right time.
6. You can stop the recording by pressing the square button on the status bar. Or you can also use the hotkeys of Alt + 2.
And then, you will find the recorded file in the recording list. You can easily play, edit, rename, locate, delete, merge, and upload them on the list.
Press the folder icon>> right-click on the file name in the popup folder>> choose Properties. Go to the Details tab, and you will find the video recorded in 2048×1080 resolution.
Other than converting 1K video to 2K resolution with RecMaster, you can also use a video recorder.
For example, WinXDVD HD Video Converter.
You can import the 1K video and choose the 2K MP4 Video Profile, and run the conversion.
An image that’s shot in 2K resolution is at least 2000 horizontal pixels by 1080 vertical pixels. It is also known as a “cinema resolution” due to its high resolution. Usually, these images are captured at 2048 x 1080 pixels, though the horizontal pixel quantity may vary based on the aspect ratio:
2K HDTV aspect ratio – 2048 x 1152 pixels
2K Academy ratio – 2048 x 1536 pixels
2K Quad HD – 2560 x 1440 pixels
2K and 1K(1080p) are often used interchangeably by consumers; however, they are both different types of resolution.
2K video allows for zooming in and capturing extra detail while displaying on a large screen. A 2K resolution video should have a sharper color and image quality than a video at a lower resolution.
In comparison, the 4K resolution is 4,096 x 2,160 pixels, resulting in a total pixel count of 8,847,360. It has a bigger size with much better quality than 2K resolution. And you can also record 4K videos with RecMaster.
And with RecMaster, you can not only convert 1K to 2K resolution, but also record videos in 1K, 2K, 4K, and more.
