Thread: how to edit in 16:9

  1. Default how to edit in 16:9

    I'm sure I've shot in 16:9 because thats what my camera says I'm shooting in.

    But when I set my sony vegas movie studio 9 to widescreen, the video still is 4:3 and wont stretch to its new aspect ratio. Which is annoying.

    How do I correct this?

    What are your project setting ?

  3. Default

    PAL DV Widescreen (720x576, 25.000 fps)

    Is that what you mean? I got it from the project properties section.

    A couple of questions.

    1. dose the image look squashed in the preview window ie do people look tall and thin.

    2. what camera did you use ? Are you sure it's not like my old Panasonic GS200 camera and just puts a letterbox (black bars) top and bottom and calls that wide screen. which is not wide screen it's just 4:3 with a letter box.

  7. Default

    No, the images look fine, they have black bars on the left and right sides. e.g. the opposite of letterbox.

    and I used a JVC Everio MG330

    Well if the image looks right in a 4:3 ratio your camera must have shot the footage in a 4:3 ratio.

    I'm not familiar with your camera so I can't help you more.

    Try playing one of the clips with media player. Is it 4:3 or 16:9? How are you so sure that it was shot 16:9? Did it look 16:9 in the viewfinder?
