dvx-100 specific capture problem!

Hello.

i am having a real problem capturing video from my dvx-100

i have had the problem with my canopus raptor rt2 card and now i have a new matrox rtx-100 card and the problem persists...

the footage was shot on a dvx-100a with the in camera FAKE letterbox i.e. 4:3 footage with black bars above/below but it is NOT in 16:9 or anamorphic etc.

the footage comes into premiere as 720x480 with a pixel aspect ratio of 1.2 not .9

i can't get any help from the manufacturers because as soon as they hear dvx-100 they automatically blame it on the camera being 24p and kind of shut down on listening to anything else.

Matthew,
Did you intend to post this in the DV/MX forum versus the DVX100 forum? You might get a better response there.

At any rate, once you bring the video into Premiere, can't you change the pixel aspect ratio back to .9? I presume you want letterbox and not 16:9. If you are trying to figure out why the clips are being set to 1.2, you might look at your capture card's preferences to see if it autodetects a widescreen mode. If the card doesn't do it, then the DVX may be setting it that way for some reason. Or, maybe Premiere is setting it automatically.
