non-square pixels

Hi Love,
That's interesting. How exactly would non-square pixels affect the original aspect ratio? And how did you confirm that the .wmv file output from Adobe Media Encoder used non-square pixels?

Scott,

Non-square pixels are rectangular and would indeed stretch the picture as is displayd in your footage. It's the same visual effect as watching 4:3 material stretched on a 16:9 display.

Re: non-square pixels

I remember there is a tool will show all the video/audio info of a media file. In your case, the video is 1280x720 (media player said), but the acual display is obviosly 1280x 600 or something, much less than 720, so it must be none-square pixels.

Thanks guys. I do notice that a tiny bit of the bottom and top of my original video got chopped off, so perhaps this is another artifact of non-square pixels. I'll look to see if any of the various video packages I have access to will display a more complete summary of the file info and let you know if I find one that shows pixel type.
