I went through the entire process of capturing, editing, and authoring video with Premiere Pro CS4 only to realize that the first half of my hour-long project was captured with the wrong aspect ratio. The aspect ratio of the footage is 16:9, whereas the capture settings were set for 4:3. The discrepancy causes flickering and other unwanted effects to the video, but I'm not compelled to redo the entire business with all the cuts and effects that I so carefully worked on. Is there a way to recapture the footage off the DV tape, this time with the correct aspect ratio, and to import it to the project so that it would replace the respective, pre-existing while keeping all the editing decisions of the old footage intact?
Thanks a million for any help!
Just make a new sequence with the right aspect ratio.
Copy old timeline into new one.
