Exporting 16:9 for Windows Media

I shot some video using in 16:9 with my Pdx10, and then captured the footage on the same setting in Premiere 6.5. Exporting the finished video to video maintains the 16:9 ratio, but when I try to export for windows media, it crunches it down to 4:3. Is there something I'm missing in export, or is it not possible to export a .wmv to 16:9?

I've had issues like this with premiere using a GL1 and its "fake" 16:9. i would always export to an AVI and then use WMEncoder and manually select the crop settings. seemed to work for me.

Maintaining 16:9 framing

Try setting your resolution to 320x172. This should give you the correct frame.

win media 16x9

In win media there are two possibilities to encode in 16x9:

option 1.
Chose under "compression/general": "Alow non-square pixel output" and under video size "same as profile" or 16x9", depending on yr actual input size. Choose under compression/speed for instance: 360x288

option 2.
Uncheck: "Alow non-square pixel output"
and chose under "compression/speed" the video size 16x9
for instance 512x288

Win Media claims that under "processing/options", choosing not to Deinterlace gives better results as deinterlacing. ( when the output size is less off the half of the original). Read the helpfile for this matter.

My experience is that choosing square pixels and a video output 16x9 gives better results as choosing non-square pixels!

Play a bit with the other settings suiting your connection speed.

Succes!
