    Render is 21:9 not 16:9


      Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me.


      When working on this clip I created in Ae, I have it at 1920x1080p, and the aspect ratio on screen looks to be 16:9.


      Whenever I do a RAM preview in full screen, it looks to be 16:9 (I'm using a Macbook Pro 15 inch, if that means anything).


      But whenever I go to Render this and play it on Quicktime, it looks stretched. As in, the black empty space on the top and bottom are 3x more than what it looks like in RAM preview.


      It's almost as if the Render is having the aspect ratio look to be 21:9, instead of 16:9.


      I've looked at all the settings, and everything looks fine, and I even have it checked to keep the aspect ratio at 16:9, but it still looks stretched.


      I'm wanting this video clip to be used for YouTube.


      Does anyone know what's wrong with it? Can anyone help?


      Using CS6 btw.

          Check your composition settings and your render settings. Render settings should Match the composition settings right down to the frame rate.  Make sure you check pixel aspect ratios. Actually, my biggest question is how are you measuring your rendered file?


          Without complete details it's impossible to say what's gone wrong.
