Paul ..
In another thead a user stated the CG does not work when the VT output is set to wide screen.
Is NT addressing this ??
What exactly is the issue ??

also how would you recommend we deal w/ media say PowerPoint slides as we will be outputing at 16:9.

1) design our slides in 16:9
2) design in 4:3

Well, when he said it 'doesn't work', he was referring to the fact that CG is fixed at 4:3 resolution. So, if you output a CG page to 16:9, a circles will be stretched horizontally.

A possible work-around for now would be to create your pages in Aura, where you can adjust aspect ratio before you begin creating. Then, on-screen design on the computer will match your 16:9 stretched video.

Well, Paul, other than the workaround of not using the built-in CG, is this something that is being addressed by Newtek soon???

I mean, it's just plain silly that EVERYTHING else in the VT suite has been fully 16:9 capable since VT[2].

CG is a very important tool in any video suite. Workarounds in Aura just don't cut it for long scrolls and such.
