Loss Of 16:9 Aspect Ratio After Output To Avi File



9 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

I tried several AVI outputs last night and didn't have an issue. Perhaps if you gave us more information. Step by step and the output settings you chose.



Okay. I retraced my steps and took a closer look. As I generally do with Videowave productions utilizing multiple effects and music, I broke this production up into parts. This one has three.


Each was created as a new production in 16:9 format. Those productions were saved to my hard drive as DV AVI files. When played on their own, they appear properly in the 16:9 frame.


I then started a new Videowave production, also in 16:9 format. This production consists of three panels -- parts 1, 2, and 3, the DV AVI files. But when I play in preview mode or play the output file, this production plays with a squished visual in a 16:9 frame, with black bars on each side.


Apparently, the problem occurs when creating my final file. Any ideas?

Hmmmmmm..... shouldn't do that, but I'll do three short clips tomorrow or over the weekend to see if I can duplicate this. What was the final output file type?



Just did a quick test and worked fine. I created three separate 16:9 DV AVI clips. Then took those back into Videowave and output to DV AVI and MPEG 2. Both files played back 16:9 like they should.


Try again and this time add each DV AVI one at time. Each time checking the preview for each file.

What is the source of the original file? If a camcorder, what brand/model?



Original file is a combination of still photos from my Kodak 5MP Easyshare camera, HD footage from my Canon HV30, and some captured footage from a DVD movie, DAY OF THE DOLPHIN. I began the Videowave project with the 16:9 setting, and adjusted cropping on all stills for montages to make sure the fit in the 16:9 frame. The HD footage was already in 16:9.
