The resolutions ini file 'quickres.ini'

Location: (Win7, Vista)
User directory:
C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\POV-Ray\3.7\
  subdirecory: ini\quickres.ini:
The file 'quickres.ini' contains the resolutions which can be choosed by
the left upper resolution field (pull-down menu) in the POV-Ray editor. (see image!)

POV-Ray resolutions

Adding Your own resolutions to the drop down menu:
The content of the resolutions in the drop down menu is stored in 'quickres.ini'.
How to edit 'quickres.ini':
POV-Ray tools

To add new resolutions like i.e. 1280x720 pixels (16:9) in mosaic rendering and in rendering with antialiasing we have to open the file 'quickres.ini' and copy the following text somewhere in that file, as shown in the opposite image.

[1280x720,16:9,No AA,mosaic]
Width=1280
Height=720
Antialias=Off
+B2048
+SP16
+B1024

[1280x720,16:9,AA 0.3]
+B2048
Width=1280
Height=720
Antialias=On
Antialias_Threshold=0.3 
POV-Ray adding resolutions
A new resolution with 'mosaic' and 'antialiasing'
Note:     If you use other aspect ratio than 4:3,
don't forget to use a camera with the proportions defined by
      right     x*image_width/image_height         !!!!
Otherwise the image field will look stretched or compressed!

POV-Ray reads 'povray.ini' and 'quickres.ini' only once while starting.
Any change in these files need a shut down and restart of the POV-Ray program to take effect!
