16:9 Capture ONCE AND FOR ALL

Okay, I have read many of the threads concerning this I want to end the questions once and for all.

If I shoot in 16:9 and capture in Adobe Premiere Pro 7.0, why does it look like 16:9 in the editing screen, but export squished?

What settings should be changed to prevent being exported squished?

This is an XL2 problem so I posted it in the XL forum, not Editing forum.

Hi Mathew,
I assume that you are using Premiere Pro 1.0 (used to be called Premiere 7.0).

I run PPro 1.5 and hav eno problems. One question,
what format are you exporting to? If your project is a wide screen project (16:9) and you are exporting to a movie, you should have no problem. But , if oyu r project is a 4:3 project, you can not effectively exporet to 16:9.

If you are using WMV to convert the exported 16:9 AVI, make sure that the export size is an increment of 16:9.

Good luck,
Gone Fishing.
If you need me, please wait!
If it is important, please wait longer.

Why are you not posting this in the post production forum? This has nothing to do with XL2...

Hi Matthew,

I see you've started a thread with essentially the same question in the Premiere forum already, and I agree with others that this has to be a settings issue, not anything specific to the XL2, so I'm closing this thread to avoid confusion. Your other thread:


is in the right place. I'm sure that you've just missed a setting within PPro somewhere in the process.
