    Premiere Pro CS3 Media Encoder question...

    Level 1

      I got a question regarding the Premiere Pro CS3 Media Encoder.

      I am converting a sequence in Premiere Pro CS3 which contains footage from a '.vob' file which is NTSC, 720x480, 16:9 to a '.flv' file.

      Now I'm doing this via Premiere Pro CS3 Media Encoder and it let's me choose the Width & Height but there is no checkbox to keep the proportions - which I find is very, very inconvenient...

      So if I wanna convert this to a .flv file which is 400 high, the width should be 600, right ?

      Also, there is no way to specify to keep the 16:9 aspect ratio.

      Is that done automatically or how/where can I specify it ?

      Thanx for your help in advance !

          If you want 16:9. you need to consider that the lower number should probably be divisible by 72. So, if you want something about 600 wide, I would use 360 for the lower number which gives you a frame size of 640X360

          When divisible by 72, it is evenly divisible by both 8, which is great for encoders, and 9, which is the frame ratio you want.

          Just choose square pixels and you will be fine.
