What is the PAR (Pixel Aspect Ratio) of your source footage, and what is the PAR in your Project Preset? As the YouTube footage did not look squeezed, as it should, when one has Widescreen (16:9 w/ PAR = 1.2) and is Exporting to Standard (4:3 w/ PAR = 0.9), I question the source footage being 16:9 to begin with. Also, some cameras do not do real Widescreen, but only crop, so that it looks like it is.
Good luck, and let us know about those PAR's, please,
I open with Hard Disk, Flash Memory Camcorder option and use the HD 1080i 30 preset. PRE7 says those are Square Pixels 1.0
Do you have a better preset to use in mind? I have a few short clips I can sample with. I does not look like I can change my You TUbe upload settings, says it auto selects the best for the user.
I have seen other people with the same camera as me able to prduce HD footage, so I think my problem is finding the right PRE7 settings....
OK, first thing that I see is the HD Preset, and then the SD footage. You seem to be shooting SD, by the specs in your initial post. You need to match youe Project Preset to your source footage. An HD Preset does not make your SD footage HD.
How do I match that with what PRE7 gives me for options? I tried using using other formats and have not stumbled across one that works even in lower quality widescreen 16.9 settings.
If I have a bunch of video saved to my hard drive as the following which preset get me the wide screen HD?
Frame Width 720
Frame Height 480
Data rate 3110kbps
Total bitrate 3174kbps
AVI video clip
If my source is the issue can I do something about it? Shot in a 110 wide angle...looks like You Tube gets 4.3 aspect no matter what?
I think I may have issues getting my vidoe and PRE7 to work together...or maybe it is You Tube?
With the 720 x 480, 30 fps footage, I would choose the NTSC DV Preset*, as that should match. Not sure what the Audio is from your helmet cam, but PrE can Conform (basically convert, ingest and then setup with 32-bit, floating point) to edit.
Let us know how that works for you.
* I still do not see what the PAR is for that source footage. G-Spot should give you that too.
Apparently it is PRE7.
If this is the best it will do I got hte rope a dope from Dell when I added on the Adobe Suite for photo and video editing.
I will uninstall the junk and find something that work better.
Thanks for trying Hunt
I think that you will really need to try and look for some NLE (Non Linear Editor) that can upscale your SD material to look good in HD. That is tough. Now, the dedicated chips in upscaling DVD/BD players can make DVD (SD) footage look better on an HD TV, but that is done with special circuitry, and not with the actual footage from the NLE.
Good luck, and let us know what you decide on, regardless of who makes it.
Firgured it out... Need to adjust the settings on the Helmet Cma (VIO
product) to 720X400 and it will work in widescreen 16:9 HD with Pre7....
Thanks for trying to help.
Glad that you got it sorted, and thanks for reporting the setting.
