My Sony tape camcorder is 1080/50i and captures widescreen format and I set PremierePro sequence settings to HDV 1080i 25. Yet when I set my AE composition to refect this by selecting HDV 1080 25(for 1080i - 1440x1080), the format is a square 4:3 and everything looks squished). I can only change the format to 16:9 widescreen by making the composition HDTV 1080 25 (which is a larger format for 1080p). Can anyone throw any light on why the seeemingly identical settings give two different formats? or have I completely misunderstood?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Enable the aspect ratio correction switch at the bottom of the comp viewer.
Many thanks, Mylenium. That's solved my problem.
Cheers and happy holidays.
