ususally rendering does not touch your composition settings as long you do not change something in the Output Module like Stretch or Crop.
Check your composition settings again >> then add to render queue >> Render Settings should be set to "Best Settings" >> in the Output Module modify only "Format", "Video Output" (checked), "Format Options"
thats it. should be a 1:1 render - depending on which codec you are using.
Thanks for the help. Sorry it took me so long to reply.
I took time to test it again, several times, and again, same issue. Again, if I shorten the time down to under a few minutes it seems to be fine. But once I go over that point, it shrinks the footage down.
I used the same settings, so nothing there has changed.
Any other ideas?
are you running the latest AE version 9.0.1 ?
if not, go and update.
if you have a full license, there is free (startup) support where you can put all your belongings there. just contact adobe.
BTW.: from where do you read out the "AVI 720 x 480 (1.21) to a AVI 720 x 480 (0.91)" information? Any external Player?
Indeed, I am. 9.0.1.
It is indeed a full license. I'll see if I can find the support page.
I've gotten the info from both After Effects and Premiere. But it's very obviously different in whatever player I try it in.
important is: does your footage, project, whatever shows up visually (in the blink of your eye) correct? or do you just get too deep into the numeric values for referencing your work?
if you use dynamic link inbetween those two apps (which you could have tell us from the beginning that you are using those two apps interactively), you'd better take care of this "functionality" or "option" or "feature".
it's (not yet) a vice versa playground. please bear that in mind.
Unfortunately the footage looks "squeezed" and is very obviously different.
I am using the footage solely in AF.
I appreciate the help Thomas.
ok, end of message, adobe please take over.
contact Adobe Support!
i don't know if following link everybody points to is rather useful or not, but give it a try
this adobe site is a huge jungle for my opinion.
Have not had any luck getting help yet.
I did however try the same sort of thing on a AF CS3 computer and had the exact same problem.
What CoDecs/ compression do you use? Sounds like whatever output format you choose doesn't go well with the corrected PAR handling in CS4. Also, is you source footage interpreted correctly to begin with?
1. When you say "Export" I hope you meant to say "Render via the Render Queue."
2. The Pixel Aspect Ratio (PAR) is just meta data, so you could just change the interpretation of the render in AE or your NLE (where are you going to use the file?)

Sorry, yes. I did mean "render via the Render Queue."
Ok, I'll try that. I am going to use the finished project in Premiere.
