Hey, I'm wondering if this is a bug or just my user error. Here's the scoop. I have a ProRes HQ master that is 1920 x 1080p. When I open it in QT 7 or 10 or VLC it shows the proper aspect ratio. When I open it in Compressor it shows it is square pixels, so 1.00 as it should be. However when I create a project that matches the file in Premiere 6.0.2 and import it appears quite stretched. If I right click and get properties Premiere sees it as 1.333. If I right click and tell Premiere to create a sequence that matches the file it has the same stretched look before/after I drop it into the sequence. Any thoughts?

It happens sometimes. That's why Adobe provided a method to correct it. Right click on the clip in the bin and go to Modify>Interpret Footage... There you can set the PAR back to 1.0.
Yay Jim! Thanks for posting. I was trying to see how to change the par. This goes in my "best tips" list. Have an awesome week!!
