Adobe Premiere CS 6.03  problem importing / exporting .mov Aspect ratio 16:9 720x576 not recognized

FIRST PROBLEM:

 

Hi, We have a big problem with ADOBE PREMIERE PRO CS 6.03 lastest version , and .mov file 720x576 made in 16:9 aspect ratio.

 

Adobe Premiere can't recognized the right aspect ratio on .mov file and import the file in 4:3 format.

 

The images are distorted in timeline because the image was made in 16:9.

 

Finally, I need to go on the menu "Video effect" to the parameters 'width scale" and set the file to the value of 134, and so I have 16:9 format

 

Is it normal ? Maybe not....

 

 

 

SECOND PROBLEM:

 

If I try to export the file in the same format:

 

Format: Quicktime

Codec:  PAL , H264,AAC , 48KHZ

Go to video menu select ASPECT RATIO: D1/DV PAL WIDESCREEN 16:9

 

The output file created is: 1050x576 under Quicktime information file.

 

The right output made by Final Cut or Edius is 1024x576

 

If you read the file information with : Mediainfo or Gspot , the right format is 1024x576 not the 1050x576!

 

is it normal? Maybe not....

    When you import the file, are you doing as described here?

    Please NOTE that the PPro CS6 screen may look a bit different (I use CS5)

    For CS5 and later, the easy way to insure that your video and your project match

    This is best handled by right clicking on the clips in the bin and selecting Modify>Interpret Footage... and changing the Pixel Aspect Ratio (PAR) to 1.4.

    The properties of an exported file will be determined by your export settings.  Check this out.

    Let's leave that for later.  For now, what is the desired use of the export?

    1024x576 is PAL Widescreen, but only when using square pixels.  So you need to edit in a 1024x576 square pixel sequence and export exactly the same frame dimensions with square pixels.  The key is to use square pixels for the export PAR and not DV PAL Widescreen.

    In the export setting choose PAL h.264 AAC 48 etc.

    unchain and set with manually to 1024 and PAR to 1.0

    Once again, let's take a step back.  You may be trying to solve a problem that doesn't need solving.  What is the desired use of the export?  Computer playback?  Further editing?  Web playback?  DVD or Blu-ray?

    OK.

     

    Based on that, your export settings look correct.  I'd honestly ignore what QuickTime has to say about it.  It's not the most reliable tool on the world.  Your export will come out 720 x 576 using the BBC standard Pixel Aspect Ratio.  You can't get any more broadcast compliant than that.
