I can repost the current video you had up on my server until the higher resolution is online if you do not mind Devon.

Hi Devon, I'll have to ask you to please upload it again to a new location on our media server. Look for an email from me with the updated FTP folder info.

Thanks Devon --

The file is located at media.dvinfo.net/canonxh/bendoregonlarge.wmx

Download the file and save it to your local drive first, and the re-name the file, changing its extension from .wmx to .wmv -- then open and enjoy.

Aspect ratio..?

...lovely footage... shot in 16:9, presumably...?

However, when I play this back in either Quicktime or Windows Media player for the Mac, it shows it as 4:3. i.e. images are squished horizontally.
If I load the clip into a 16:9 FCP timeline, it looks correct.

Any idea what I need to tweak in Qt or WMP to get the correct aspect ratio view..?

Thx, Ross.

Shot in 16:9 and plays fine as a 16:9 Windows Media file on my computer (the exact file I uploaded). I have version 11, don't know if that matters or not. Maybe you need to exapand to fullscreen in WM?

Beautiful images - thank you for sharing!

I am quite irritated though by the vertical magenta lines on the right sides of the black trees, left side of the frame, first takes.
Is this chromatic aberration? If so - why only on the left side of the frame?

Best regards, Michael Mann

Devon, it's not a bad idea to encode in square pixels (1920x1080) as not all media players seem to pick up on the anamorphic pixel flag. No one should have platform issues with a square pixel format. Cool footy btw :-)

Aspect ratio

I'm running QT Pro (v7.1.3) and Windows Media Player (v9.0) both on a PowerMac . Seems that these versions do not grab that anamorphic flag... shame..
Rgds, Ross.

Dennis: very good point. So, all I do is encode the 1440x1080 (1.33) as an export of 1920x1080 (1.0 square pixels)? Will do from now on.

Aspect Ratio

This clip can also be seen in the appropriate width:height ratio on a Macintosh by viewing it with VLC video player and setting the Video Preference in VLC (under the Preference menu) to "Source Aspect Ratio" 16:9. I assume this would be true with VLC on a Windows-based computer as well.

Very nice footage indeed, Oregon seems to be a beautiful place and the photographic work is superb. The choice of music is also very tasteful, it complements the shot perfectly. You said that the music is from the Gladiator soundtrack, where can one licence this kind of music for such web distribution?

For the record: quicktime also shows the footage as 4x3 on my mac. To change that: open "movie properties", click on the video track, then "visual settings", unclick "preserve aspect ratio" and choose "1960 x 1080" as "scaled size".

Sorry, the 4:3 problem was addressed above. I guess some of the media players recognize the anamorphic flag and others don't. I know that Windows Media Player 11 plays it properly.
