ok plain and simple, what should you composition settings be in after effects, in order to import the finished composition into adobe encore cs3, without any stretching, distortion, pixellation, etc.
i am about to kill myself with this issue.
all the settings i try either squish, stretch, distort, leave black bars on the top and bottom or left and right, or pixellate the image.
create a AE composition from scratch, draw a perfect circle on the background using mask. NOW HOW DO YOU GET THAT PERFECT CIRCLE INTO ENCORE WITHOUT LOOKING LIKE AN OVAL OR PIXELLATING THE EDGES??!!?!?!???!??!???!??!?
Rick Gerard's Dr Strangepixel essay is a valuable resource:
Basically, stick with the PAL/NTSC presets and you can't go wrong. Just remember that computer monitors use square pixels and DVDs do not. So any PAL or NTSC file you look at on a computer monitor 1:1 will look slightly distorted, but will be fine on DVD.
