    Correct recurring aspect ratio misinterpretations

    DAC1x

      Hello.

       

      I am using Premiere Pro CS6.04. When importing 704x480, 16:9 camcorder clips to a Sequence it will only import at 4:3. I understand I can Modify/Interpret Footage each clip and adjust from there. This works fine. However this is not worakble when using many (perhaps hundreds) clips. On page 145 of the Reference Manual is speaks to this under: "Correct recurring aspect ratio misinterpretations" as follows:

       

      Premiere Pro automatically assigns pixel aspect ratios to files according to a file of rules. If a specific type of image is consistently misinterpreted

      (distorted) when you import it, you can change the relevant rule.

      1. Open a text editor.

      2. From within the text editor, go to the Premiere Pro Plug-ins folder.

      3. Open the file named Interpretation Rules.txt.

      4. Edit the rule that you want to modify, and choose Save

       

      I have done this to no avail. Here is the original .txt file setting:                                                                

       

      # assume ATSC 704x480 in any format is D1 aspect

      704, 480, *, *, * = 10/11, *, *, *

       

      # assume NTSC DV is D1 aspect

      720, 480, *, *, * = 10/11, *, *, *

       

      # NTSC D1 is D1 aspect

      720, 486, *, *, * = 10/11, *, *, *

       

      # PAL D1/DV

      720, 576, *, *, * = 768/702, *, *, *

       

      # HD 1080 Anamorphic

      1440, 1080, *, *, * = 1920/1440, *, *, *

       

      The corrected txt file:

       

      # assume ATSC 704x480 in any format is D1 aspect

      704, 480, *, *, * = 1080/891, *, *, *

       

      # assume NTSC DV is D1 aspect

      720, 480, *, *, * = 1080/891, *, *, *

       

      # NTSC D1 is D1 aspect

      720, 486, *, *, * = 1080/891, *, *, *

       

      # PAL D1/DV

      720, 576, *, *, * = 1080/891, *, *, *

       

      # HD 1080 Anamorphic

      1440, 1080, *, *, * = 1920/1440, *, *, *

       

      The change is from 10/11 (4:3) to 1080/891 (which should be 1.21)

       

      After saving, rebooting, opening and closing Premeire Pro etc. I still does not import with the "corrected" setting. Any guidance where I am going wrong would be appreciated as individual changing of clips is not feasible.

       

      Thank you!
