    Exporting .mov as DV - NTSC Creates Letterbox Effect

    tsevenhuysen

      Hi,

       

      I've been trying to export a video and I'm getting some weird output.

       

      I want an uncompressed .mov file, so when I'm exporting I pick to export as .mov, then create a new preset, choose the "Apple DV/DVCPRO - NTSC" codec, and set it to 16:9 (because my project is widescreen, and I want widescreen output).

       

      However, the outputted video is having a letterbox effect added to it, with black bars above and below the actual video.

       

      Is there some option I'm missing that's forcing my video into 4:3 letterbox? What do I have to change?

       

      It doesn't seem to matter what I do. I've played with the pixel ratios with no effect, and it won't let me manually set a resolution: I can click where it says "720" and input a new width, but it just immediately reverts to 720.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks.
