I have started a new video project with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 in Photoshop CS6with a pixel aspect ratio set to square.. In the project I add a video to the timeline. The source video was created in QuickTime and exported at a 1920 x 1080 resolution MOV file. I have check both the source clip at the canvas siye and have confirmed that both are 1920 x 1080. However, when I import the video it takes up less than the entire frame. It appears that the video is being scaled down so that there is some white space to the right and below the video clip. See the image below.
In the past I have been able to import 1920x1080 video to a 1920x1080 proejct without a problem. I have 4 or 5 examples that have worked well. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Are you sure? That definitely looks more like 1280x720. Maybe you have inadvertently changed sizes inbvetween when recording on your camera... Perhaps you can verify that in Quicktime itself or a more video-centric program...
I agree with Mylenium - looks just like 1280 x 720.
I would download, install and run MediaInfo (there is both a Mac and PC version, and both are free), and see what it says about your MOV file.
Not sure if the standard QT Player gives much info, but the Pro version does - Ctrl+J on the PC, so maybe Cmd+J on the Mac?
How was the MOV created, or what camera was used to produce it?
Thanks all for the ideas.
I checked a few things.
Ctrl+J in Quick time shows normal size is 192x1080, although display size is less at 1614 x 908. I am wondering if this is related to the issue somehow. Quick time properties dialog screen shot is below.
Here is also a screenshot of the image size dialog in PS.
The options bar shows 100% when I click Crtl+T (Sorry I am a windows guy).
The movie was created in QuickTime. It is a time lapse created from a source image sequence of 1920 x 1080 jpgs.
I found a solution to the problem. I opened the source .MOV file in Quicktime and then set the view to 100%. After that I saved the source file and closed quicktime.
I then imported the .MOV file back into Photoshop CS6 and the movie fills the entire frame as I would have expected.
