Is your project using a 16:9 preset?
Also what type of camcorder are you capturing from, and are you capturing over Firewire?
Thanks Steve for getting back.
Yes I am using 16:9 as my preset & am capturing over FireWire
The camera is a Panasonic NV-GS250.
Never had this problem in the past.
Hmm. This certainly sounds like a non-widescreen project set-up -- but maybe not!
What happens if you right-click on the clips and select Interpret Footage/Widescreen?
Go to Edit> Preferences.Project Settings.
Tell us if you see 16:( or 4:3
(I'm in the UK so I have a time difference)
I checked Preferences etc on the bad footage & it indicated 16:9
I re-checked all the Capture settings & other menus. (Even though all the settings were reading as correct, I reset everything again)
Everything now appears to be functioning as it should do.
I did this whole exercise a few times previously, and the fault persisted (before I posted the topic) It intermittantly produces this fault for no apparent reason.
I will see how things go for now & if the error re-occurs, I shall re-visit this topic.
Thanks for your help.
I'm using Adobe Premiere 2.0, ADVC 110, Canon ZR960 Wide Screen DV Camera. I start a new project, select NTSC Widescreen but when capturing the video is obviously squeezed to 4:3 even though the general settings say 16:9 720 X 480 (greyed out).
Shouldn't it be 1024 X 768?
How do I fix this?
Does "Interlaced" affect the true ratio?
Creativecow.com mentions editing with word pad, has anyone done this?
In AP 2.0 start a new project I see NTSC Widescreen (1.2). Wiki indicates 16:9 (1.78:1), what is True widescreen? Can AP 2.0 recognize Canon's "True" widescreen footage?
Yes. It should be able to if your project is properly set up.
I found a post that indicates I should capture and the right click the clip and choose interpret footage then the window will adjust and look widescreen.
Yes, "Intepret Footage" and "Conform To" is the way to go.
