I'm having a real headache at the moment with my Magix Movie Edit Pro 2005 (I know old version!!). I've had this for quite a while and managed to capture loads of stuff from my camcorder and make reasonable home movies.
However, about 3 months ago every time I now capture video footage it is in 4:3 ratio instead of 16:9 widescreen. I've tried various settings etc but nothing seems to work i.e. change screen resolution presets etc both before and after importing footage, changing tab to 16:9 in "Advanced" section when opening burning menu. I can only think that the problem is due to the way the footage is imported.
Checked my widescreen camcorder - ok. Plays footage in widescreen on tv. Tried someone else's tape in my camcorder and same problem still occurs. Basically, I'm stuck - and very annoyed cos I've completed a 2 hour video that I wanted to burn - and its all in 4:3!!!
One other thing - downloaded a movie I already owned. Imported this into Magix and it played/burned ok in widescreen - so seem to think this indicates there is something wrong with the settings for when importing/capturing etc???
Help would be much appreciated!!!
