View Full Version : 16:9 DVEs

Has anyone ever made 16:9 DVEs for the VT or don't the tools support creating that?

I can't believe I'm the only one here doing 16:9 work with the VT...

Man I wish it supported 16:9 properly...:(

The default DVE creation kit files don't have a 16:9 preset, but it's a simple matter of changing the camera and the video surfaces to be 16:9 in the LW scenes. For the Aura created ones it is even easier. Just work in a 16:9 project.

Most of the higher-end 16:9 using people aren't using the outrageous effects with geometry, so I guess there hasn't been a huge call for them or else a third-party would have been selling them. Any wipe that doesn't have a very specific shape (wipes, organic soft edged, etc.) works fine in either aspect ratio.

Until recently, there haven't been that many people with 16:9 TV's and not too many people shooting in 16:9 because of it.

That said, yes, I have made them before. ;)
