Usually not a good idea to set a denominator to zero. The clap atom documentation at https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/QuickTime/QTFF/QTFFChap3/qtff3.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40000939-CH205-125850 <https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/QuickTime/QTFF/QTFFChap3/qtff3.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40000939-CH205-125850> specifies zero for numerators and one for denominators as default when the ratio of an actual aperture is not used.

The atom is analogous to the PixelCrop* elements of Matroska. For instance a standard definition NTSC video may typically be digitized to a frame size of 720x486 but the active image might only be 704x480, so the aperture atom could express the difference.
