There is no universal format for HD and SD.

Stick with the document presets in Photoshop, just choose video category in new file dialog box.

hi...I would like to make a station id bug. What resolution should I use? This will be used for SD and HD. also What file type when saving the bug is best?

Thank you very much, and as always your expertise is so appreciated along with all creative cow has to offer, which is the best tool by far for editors alike.
