Scale to fill (or something like that, I'm not at my computer) in the output tab of AME?
Hi thanks for reply i can only see scale to frame, when i do that it goes to original setting 1920x1080. cant see scale to fill..
By default PrPro uses MPEG 2 for rendering preview. MPEG 2 utilises macroblocks of 8x8 pixels to compress data. The height of your sequence is 817 pixels. 817 / 8 = 102.125. Set your hight to either 816 or 824 pixels so as to get rid of that black bar at the bottom.
Here’s some notes I made on getting 2:37:1 working.
Standard TV frame is based on 4perf 35mm film and is
4:3 = 1.3333:1
Squeeze a standard frame by 4:3 using an anamorphic lens or letterboxing and you get:
4x4:3x3 = 16:9 = 1.7777:1
Squeeze it again
16:9 x 4:3PAR = 64:27 = 2.37:1
So, theatrical 2.37:1 is actually a 16:9 frame with a standard 4:3 anamorphic lens.
Eg: start with
35mm full frame is 4:3
Letterbox the 4:3 down by 4:3 and you get 16:9 letterbox.
Add an anamorphic 4:3 lens and you get 4x4x4:3x3x3 = 2.37:1
So, for 1080p output you want 1920x1080 with a PAR of 1.333
Thus, when trying to emulate theatrical 2.37:1 you should be editing with a sequence of 1920x1080 with a PAR of 1:333:1
When you export all the scaling will then be correct.
As noted above, working in the rounded value of 817 is not a good idea. It also looses quality.
See this note on anamorphic hd I made a few weeks ago.
Thanks fuzzy but it says i cannot change the sequence sizes or i may lose all frames...
Create a brand new sequence with proper frame size, then select everything on your 1920 x 817 timeline, copy and paste into the newly created sequence.
Brilliant my friend thank you so much..
