    Default Fixing wrong-shape Stills, in Vegas

    I've been watching some of Sony's Tutorials which cover both V.Pro and V.Studio, which share the most-basic concepts - a good idea for anyone wanting to move up later, perhaps.

    What seems to be suggested is that the Still is matched to the Project aspect ratio . . . nothing wrong with that, except all it does is "Letterbox" the Still, cutting off much of the image.

    I sometimes use PSP to tidy-up Stills (and mask out background, saving as .PNG so another vid can be played behind..... although knowing I may want a still for filling-in a vid, I have selected the 16:9 aspect ratio in the camera . . . . I presume the camera throws away the unwanted bits, but it doesn't appear so brutal as doing it in Vegas, since you've seen the picture composed in the finder.

    Am I right in thinking it's possible to alter the Aspect ratio of a Still (e.g. in PSP) by resampling?
    This presumes the original is Megapixel and is being used at a lower res in a video, but I'm a bit shakey on the exact means. Can anyone suggest what resolution is needed to match HD video - or do I just aim for 1920 x 1080.

    Ideas, Suggestions, pse.

    You seem to have reasoned it out your self.
