Aspect changes in Video Capture and Output Posted August 18, 2020 · Report reply 7 hours ago, d_deweywright said: The fairly obvious first question is, are your scenes a mix of 4:3 and 16:9? If so, I'm assuming that your 4:3 scenes show up with black bars on the sides? Again, if your scenes are a mix of aspect ratios, how would you expect the 4:3 scenes to display? Next, question, what are you capturing from? VHS? Different devices? We need more details about your source material. Thanks! Dave D-W Hi Dave, thanks for responding. All of the scenes were taken on the same day at a wedding on the same JVC camcorder which has a hard drive. I'm by no means an expert so the camera was set to auto all through. This was then captured via Roxio on my laptop, video edited, sent to my DVD, burnt onto a disc and played. On playback the scenes definately are a mix of 16.9 and 4.3 but I dont understand why.
