Z1 native pixel aspect ratio

Hi Sony users,


Doing some effects with AE here that will be used in a documentary that was shot with the Z1.

In AE as well as Vegas, when I select 1080 in the project settings it switch the pixel aspect ratio to 1:33.

Is that the native size when the Z1 records or is it just a preference both programs offers me?

Thanks,

Phil

If you're working in HDV, you'll want to use the 1.333 PAR, as that is what the camcorder records. If you're using an intermediary codec (recommended) then you'll use a square aspect, or 1920 x 1080 frame size.

The master himself knocks at my door HIHIHI


Actually I am not playing with HD files per say. I am just creating animations in AE for that project, this is my first project with AE and my first attempt with HD settings.

I notice that 1.33 in AE so I opened Vegas and created a new project and set it to 1080 and in the project window under the PAR setting it says "HDV 1080" next to the 1.3333 choice so I assumed it was the correct PAR to select.

Since both apps are telling me the same things I still wanted to be sure before I create the whole animation.

Thanks Spot
