I thought I did everything right here. First, I went into photoshop and created 2 still images at 448 x 336 (72 dpi).
Then i went into after effects CS4. I imported them and put them on timeline. I also went into comp settings and made the size of the comp the same - 448 x 336.
Here is what AF looks like> Those blue bars I thought were just the transform boundaries (that's what I thought):
Next, I added file to render queue. I selected FLV and made sure the dimensions were the same - 448 x 336. Then I exported, added the file to FLA, and the result is I have 2 black bars on the sides. Here is the result:
I thought I did everything right but apparently not. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
I'd bet that your composition was not set to square pixels.
Yep, Rick's right. Your comp shows in the project window that your pixel aspect ratio is 0.91. You need to change the comp to square pixels.
Andrew and Rick,
Thanks for the feedback. Glad I made that snapshot to make your jobs easier to ID the problem.
Will try this out on Monday morning.
