What are your project settings and what are your export settings? And which camera are you using?
Project Setting: The second widescreen option (not sure on the specifics)
Export Setting: Quicktime (or avi)
Camera: Sony HDR-HC3 Handycam
>not sure on the specifics
You really need to be if we're to help. The info you've provided is still far too lacking. Be very specific about both project and export settings.
What are you looking for?
I'm editing in DV NTSC
My frame size is 720x480
I tried exporting in almost every way possible.
I THINK I'm supposed to be exporting in DV NTSC widescreen (16:9) and an MPEG-4 compressor. But everytime i export I get a 4:3 ratio
If your editing in a DV sequence, then no wonder the export isn't HD.
But what about the aspect ratio?
Is it a Widescreen DV preset, or Standard DV Preset? What are the export settings?
The footage is in 16:9 and I exported in DV NTSC 16:9 in quicktime and compressed with MPEG-4
Still not enough info, Josh. We need it all, every scrap of data.
What kind of media? Where did you get the video from?
What are your Project settings?
What are the export settings?
Josh . Your material is probably "letterboxed".
That isnt HD .
Its SD letterboxed (and maybe it has a widescreen PAR). Still not HD.
I recorded the video in widescreen. I realize now that I cannot get it in HD but I still want it in 16:9
I captured the video through DV with firewire.

What else are you looking for?
As for export setting, I was kind of hoping you can tell me how to export it
Josh. Is your export preference a QT?
When you export it as such (.mov), is the image 4:3 but squeezed?
If so let me know and I will tell you how to fix it.
OK, Josh. We're getting closer.
Next question, what are you're export goals here? Upload to the 'Net? Computer playback? DVD? What?
I exported in QT and yes it did get squeezed to 4:3 but I don't have any preference to what type of file I get it out to.
As for my goal, I want to upload it to the internet, yes.
When I uploaded to DVD I exported it straight to Encore and it came out as widescreen
Is there any particular site you want to upload to? YouTube? Vimeo? Your own web site? All of the above? Something else?
Facebook, youtube and vimeo if neither of those work out
Many such web sites have recommended guidelines about the video specifications they accept. I suggest doing a little research on the Facebook specs before you export, so that you know you're giving them an appropriate file.
>I exported in QT and yes it did get squeezed to 4:3
Does quicktime support aspect ratios other than square? I don't use QuickTime but I seem to recall someone mentioning that it only works with square PAR.

Oh wow thanks a lot. I'm pretty sure they accept anything youtube does, though.
I'm not so sure about QT doing only 4:3 however
Well, I don't know what YouTube accepts, so I can't really make further suggestions. This is where the research comes in on your part.
* Windows Media Video(.avi)
* .3GP (cell phones)
* .AVI (windows)
* .MOV (mac)
* .MP4 (ipod/psp)
* .FLV (adobe flash)
* .SWF (shockwave flash)
* .MKV (h.264)
>Does quicktime support aspect ratios other than square? I don't use QuickTime but I seem to recall someone mentioning that it only works with square PAR.
I will (re)post the way to fix QTs so it displays as intended (eg 16:9) when I next get back to my system with the necessary workflow instruction. (I saved it in a text document to save me re typing it everytime this comes up)
Still missing details, Josh. Like resolution for one. Will Facebook accept any resolution file? How do they handle 4:3 and 16:9? (I've seen some of these come out wrong, so you should find out in advance.) What about codecs? AVI and MOV can contain many different video codecs. Which ones will Facebook accept and work well with?
Please make sure the video is encoded in one of the following formats:
* QuickTime Movie (mov)
* Windows Media Video (wmv)
* AVI Video (avi)
* MPEG Video (mpg, mpeg)
* Windows Media Video (asf)
* MPEG-4 Video (mp4, mpeg4)
* Mobile Video (3gpp, 3gp, 3g2)
* Matroska Format (mkv)
* Flash Player Video (flv)
* DVD Video (vob)
* Ogg Format (ogm)
* Nullsoft Video (nsv)
I've seen other videos in 16:9 before. It doesn't say anything about codecs, though
Are there any file size limitations? How long is your program?
One of my videos is 4 min and the other 6.5 min
Both Youtube and facebook have a maximum file size of 1056 mb.
Try an MPEG2-DVD preset. On the Video tab, set Quality to 5, and Pixel Aspect Ratio to Widesreen (1.2). Under bitrate, set it to VBR 1-Pass, with Min=1.5, Target=6, and Max=8.
On the Audio tab, set it to PCM.
On the Multiplexer tab, set it to DVD.
Are those found when you go to export movie? Because if it is, I can't find most of the things
They are in the Adobe Media Export menu (settings)
File>Export>Adobe media Encoder...
So what do I do with the 3 different files?
If you got 3 files then you probably didn't follow Jim's "On the Multiplexer tab, set it to DVD." :) When you do, you should get a single .mpg file containing audio and video. At the moment you got output intended for DVD authoring: Audio and video each in a separate file plus an extra file specially for Encore containing chapter marker info.
Nope, it's set to DVD. I have an mpg, mpg.xmpses, and an .xmp
That just doesn't add up Josh. Try again.
It happened again. I don't know what's wrong, I did exactly what you told me to do
Before the mpg file didn't work but now it does so I guess I can just disregard the other two files
There are also a few checkboxes in the Multiplexer tab. Make sure that you have ALL of the settings right there. What will happen is that the three files will be created, but then PrP will use the .xmpses to combine into one multiplexed .MPEG file. If you watch in Windows Explorer, you will see the creation and the PrP will (should) cleanup after itself. If you stop the operation, you'll get the three files all separate - be patient.
>There are also a few checkboxes in the Multiplexer tab.
I only get the one choice - DVD or None. When you select DVD, Premiere creates a single .mpg file. Only when None is selected do I get multiple files as described.
