PAL Widescreen (16:9) is PAR = 1.422.
How do I set that in the rules.txt file? In order to get the media in correct format?
On that part, I cannot help. You mentioned the Adobe articles on modifying the Rules file, and I would hope that they might be helpful.
I just use Interpret Footage, and have never edited the Rules file. I would not know where to start - sorry
Does anyone have experience with the Rules.txt file?
I am trying to get media that are recorded in widescreen 16:9 PAR 1.422 PAL but PE imports the VOB file as an 4:3 file.
I think i have to edit these lines, but what exactly shall be edited?
# PAL D1/DV
720, 576, *, *, * = 768/720, *, *, *
# only adds a custom pixel aspect ratio to the UI
# uncomment the next line to try it out
# 0, 0, 0, "0000", * = 10/11/"Custom Aspect", *, *, *
Regards and thanks
Just a thought - instead of hacking the Rules.txt, can you not use the Interpret Footage to force PrE to recognize the Clips as WideScreen? To me, that would be a simple operation, even with a lot of files to work with.
