I'm recording a live show in VT5 using the Capture utility and want the resulting file to be 16x9. How do I set this up so that this aspect ratio is embeded into the file and not 4x3? Also, should I use DV AVI, or the SpeedHQ?

Thanks!

Very few video formats actually embed the aspect ratio information.

The only one of the formats you mention that does have a flag for 16:9 is DV. But it depends on how you capture it as to whether you have access to set that flag or not. I know using the MainConcept codec there was a preference in the codec to set that flag.

Of course, the other issue is not many programs actually read that flag.

For instance, you still need to tell TMPGEnc that an input file is 16:9.

And all of this assumes you are actually going to be feeding the VT an anamorphic 16:9 signal from your camera to begin with.
