I'm trying to edit an anamorphic 720x480 video file (you can download a sample file by going to the page at http://18.104.22.168/videowave/index.html then right-clicking and selecting save target as).
Even if I start with a 16x9 project, when I add the file to the project it is treated as a standard 4x3 file, not an anamorphic 4x3 file. Players like VLC see the file as anamorphic and play the file correctly, so it appears that Videowave is ignoring something in the file.
The source material is from component video output (the only source available) and is ALWAYS in anamorphic 720x480 format. I now have hundreds of hours of material and continue to create additional material.
Is there some way for me to tell Videowave that the file is an anamorphic 720x480 file providing a 16x9 image rather than a standard 720x480 file providing a 4x3 image? (if so, please provide step-by-step instructions)
Is there some way to get Videowave to horizontally stretch the 720x480 image into 16x9 so that the original 16x9 aspect ratio is not lost when combining it in a video production containing other 16x9 material? (if so, please provide step-by-step instructions)
If Videowave cannot perform the above functions, is there another product which can?
