Vegas stretchy pants

I have been working with this avi. clip in Vegas 9 and I can’t figure out why it is stretched out. It only looks that way in Vegas, and of course it renders out the same way. I have “stretch to fit” unchecked and it doesn’t seem to matter if I have maintain aspect ratio on or off.
I have not run into this before, and it’s really frustrating… any ideas?
Having Mars look like an egg…. Just won’t do.

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

Looks like your PAR is set incorrectly. Right-click the event on the timeline, choose Properties, go to the Media tab, and then adjust the PAR setting to match the clip.

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

Hi Ed,
Thanks for the fast reply, I checked the p.a.r and it looks right. The clip is 1440 x1080 with a p.a.r of 1.3333 (HDV 1080). I tried to change it to see what would happen and nothing changed... what the heck?

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

Is your project also set up for HDV at 1440x1080 1.3333?

After that it's back to the preview settings for close review, I'd think.

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

I would set your media to PAR of 1, it looks like Vegas might be interpreting your media wrong.
Is it a 4x3 or 16x9 frame when viewed elsewhere?

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

thanks again for the help guys,
Seth, I double checked all the project setting and they look right.
Gerald, it is all 16x9. if I set the par to 1 it throws off all of the other media in the project.
I think your right Vegas just isn't reading the media correctly... not sure why.
I can crop and re-size each one, but not really what I want.

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

If the avi clip is the only thing different from the other media, you should just change the one clip using pan and crop, not change the aspect ratio of the project. That should work.

Re: Vegas stretchy pants

could it be an issue with the monitor? maybe when vegas runs the aspect ratio gets skewed (pun intended). seriously, if it's not vegas settings, then maybe it's outside of vegas.
