Thread: Can't keep 16:9 ratio when making Pinnacle 9 movie

    Default Can't keep 16:9 ratio when making Pinnacle 9 movie

    This is driving me nuts. I created a project where I shot video in 16:9. I then edited the project in 16:9. I see the proper ratio in the upper right hand preview pain. When I go to "make move" and create the .avi file i am forced to accept 4:3 dimensions. If I try to change the height and width of the film I get either 4:3 or a movie that is really tall. Any suggestions on how to keep my formatting once I make my movie?

    thx

    I think, It's because your either using Pinnacle 9 or because AVI doesn't have 16:9. I haven't used AVI, just MPEG and iPod Compat, However, looking at AVI, I don't see a widescreen, 16:9 option in presets...

    sorry I can't be of more help

    Hmmm...that could be it. Thanks. I'll try to make it MPEG and see what happens.

    Just hope it helped you...Hey as a point of interest can you put black bars, like black out the top part of the screen and bottom, like to get rid of Timestamp of something?

    You already asked that in a different thread.
