All I want to do is import a 632 by 258 resolution video, edit it, then export it without losing quality and preferably with the same resolution.
When I start a new project I have to choose one of the default types which is either 4:3 or 16:9 plus nothing near the resolution I want. When I export the video it scrunches horizontally even when I use a letterboxed 16:9 ratio. And even then no matter what I do the video comes out in horrible quality. I've tried everything I can think of.
This process is very simple in Magix, you just import and export it as an uncompressed video. Problem is my trial is about to expire. I prefer Premiere since it is far superior...but good lord I cannot do these steps that should be very simple. And I don't care if the files are huge in size since I can compress them in Virtual Dub. As is the deal with alot of people in here I feel like punching a hole in my monitor.
For your Project/Sequence Preset, choose Desktop, and then customize the attributes to match your source footage.
For your Export, what is your intended delivery scheme. You can choose many CODEC's, and formats, depending on what you need.
