Thread: 768x576 widescreen 16:9 help!!

  1. #1

    Unhappy 768x576 widescreen 16:9 help!!

    Hi,

    I have a JVC everio cam that shoots in wide screen 16:9 MPEG2 PAL, then I put the video on my comp & get ready to edit it in Premiere Pro 2.0.

    The problem is, it shoots in 768x576, but you can tell its distorted & needs to be stretched into a 16:9 ratio.

    What presets should I use (pixel aspect ratio & include) in Prem Pro to have this displayed at its correct 16:9?





    I've been trying all day & I'm tired.


    Thanks.

    I'd be very surprised. PAL DV Widescreen is 720 x 576. Have you tried simply setting everything to that?

    Edit in D1/DV PAL widescreen 16:9
    4:3 is normally 720x576
    My opinions are just that . . . Mine. It's not personal, but is based on my emotional and professional reaction to requested critique. If you choose to ignore constructive comments, I'll just assume you're a vanity poster and not posting to improve your filming and editing skills.

    Yea Ive tried all settings, but the video still has two black bars on sides.

    The weird thing is, the Camera can record in 4:3 or 16:9.

    I choose 16:9 which is in the resolution of 768x576.



    It's a JVC everio gz ms100 camera.

    and so is 16:9
    The difference is the shape of the pixels (PAR - pixel aspect ratio)

    From your instruction manual (p36)

    For video/Audio
    Format
    SD-VIDEO
    Recording/Playback format
    Video: MPEG-2
    Audio: Dolby Digital (2 ch)
    Signal format
    PAL standard
    Recording mode (video)
    ULTRA FINE: 720 x 576 pixels, 8.5 Mbps (VBR)
    FINE: 720 x 576 pixels, 5.5 Mbps (VBR)
    NORMAL: 720 x 576 pixels, 4.2 Mbps (VBR)
    ECONOMY: 352 x 288 pixels, 1.5 Mbps (VBR)


    Now, where have you got this idea that it's 768x576?

    so sorry, don't know why I thought it was 768.

    Anyway how do I get that 720x576 footage which was shot in 16:9 mode, to actual look 16:9 when I render it in Premiere pro?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, Dillon, I can't help any further. The only version of Premiere I have access to is Elements 7 (trial) and every test I've done on that appears to work fine.
    In theory Zero is absolutely correct - use the PAL DV Widescreen option throughout - preferably before you import any media. PAR is 1.422.

    I tried all sorts of PAR & it doesn't stretch the video out to the wide screen format.


    Only bad thing about this cam is its absolutely shocking file extension MOD. Nothing at all will work with it. Have to convert first.

    And I would of assumed its wide screen would shot in 720x405 not distorted 720x576.

    Didn't read this whole thread, so I hope this hasn't been covered already. If it has then I appologize.

    From the Adobe U2U Premiere Elements forum;

    JVC Everio HDD video camcorders use a proprietary video format called the MOD file. Although this is apparently some form of MPEG2 encoding, most major video editing programs can not successfully work with this video format type and, in order to use the video in a program like Premiere Elements, it is necessary to convert these files to DV-AVIs.

    The web site i.nconspicuo.us offers this solution:

    An editing program that comes bundled with the JVC Everio, called Cyberlink PowerDirector, will convert captured Everio video to an AVI. Here's how:

    1. Import your captured .MOD files into a Cyberlink project.
    2. Place these video files onto the Cyberlink timeline.
    3. Click “Produce” and select the option to Save to File
    4. Select .AVI as the output format and select the directory that you’d like your new file stored to.

    These AVIs should be editable in Premiere Elements.
