Rendered 16x9 is 4:3 with people tall and thin...

Is there any way to fix this in DVDA or prior to insertion in DVDA without having to rerender the whole damn vid? (2.5 hours) :/

To clarify the footage is shot 16x9 and is supposed to be 16x9 but right now its all squished into a 4:3 box. :(

Working in VPro8 and it looks like it was just a stupid error on my part that rendered it thusly...although as I watched the beginning of it render it before I went to bed it looked 16x9 fine. :(
DVDA is set up for 16x9 video.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


sincerely,

ian

Unless I'm mistaken, Ian, you seem to be thinking of fixing the footage by stretching it a different direction?

Just re-render it. It cannot be fixed.

Damn!
That's what I thought, Jeff, but I was holding out hope for an alternate option... :/

Thanks.

Now back the renderer-er..... heh.

*sigh*

What error did you make on render, and where are you seeing it as a squished 4:3 box?

Hey David,

The only thing I can think of is that I'd already rendered a similar video (day 1 of 3 days of recitals) and when I went to render day 2 the bitrate/aspect/progressive items were all set but then I stepped out of the setup for that for a moment (I'd never saved the settings...doh!) and went back into them noticing the bitrates had reset default so I re-entered the numbers, set to progressive but, perhaps, forgot to set 16x9 so it rendered out as 4:3.
grrrr.
Well, back to the comp.

But if you set it to render as 4:3, it should letterbox the footage, not squish it. (Unless you also messed with the "stretch to fit" settings or something, but that's probably not likely.)

I ask because it's possible there was nothing wrong with the render; it could be that whatever you're watching the footage in is simply displaying it as 4:3 instead of 16:9. If it does this with widescreen footage, it will appear as you describe.

Hmmm.
Well, I played it in VLC and Windows Media Player and it's squished.

David, I hear what you're saying about the black bars. Yeah it should show if rendered 4:3

So, maybe I did uncheck "stretch to fit" damn.

How does it look in DVD Architect?

Is this an AVI or MPEG file?

For DVD Architect, just use the DVD Architect templates under MPEG-2. Don't change anything. Then you never have to worry.

It's an mpeg file with ac3 audio
All my menus and intro files are 16x9 but when I preview the rendered video it is squished with bars on the sides.
And mpg2 templates?
Am I blind?
heh.

I'm using DVDA5

Yeah, then you need to re-render.

Yup.
And that's just what I did, Dave. :)

Thanks for the advice everyone.

Appreciated, even though I had to re-render. :)
