View Full Version : Pixel Aspect Ratio: D1 NTSC widescreen / AE

07-24-2012, 07:35 PM
Normally this isn't a problem, but for some reason my last render isn't going into AE in the normal painless fashion.

(see screencaps) I used NTSC D1 WIDESCREEN in the lw camera settings.

Normally, bringing stuff into AE is a no brainer, and I just drag the footage to the "new comp" icon and it makes a comp that fits perfectly. :thumbsup:

This time, for some reason, the interpretation of the image is distorted, although AFAICS, all the settings are correct. :help:

Can anyone spot what is going wrong here? THANKS!

I knew this problem seemed familiar, but it has been so long since I've had to deal with it I forgot what the solution was.

Recently had one of those Adobe events where PS suddenly loses all one's settings: apparently this event also hosed my AE settings of lo so many moons ago.

See jpeg. This button causes the UI preview to mimic the PAR of the composition instead of just displaying it in square pixels. Badda bing.

Wallagh! :o :o :o
