I have P-Pro CS5, and create a New Project > My sequence is defined as a 16x9 DV PAL Widescreen Project..
This is NOT Hi-Res footage, i.e. it is Not HDV - Just PAL DV Widescreen ...
Next, then when I open the capture Window, I can ONLY ingest PAL DV as 4:3 ! > NOT in Widescreen 16x9!
I have tried everything I know, and can not figure this out... Does anyone have any ideas ?
Thanks in advance...
PAL DV is 4:3.
The wide screen is acheived by manipulating the PAR (pixel aspect ratio)
There can be widescreen (squeeze / anamorphic and wide screen letterbox)
What camera? (and setting)
What does your footage look like in the source and the project windows of PPRO?. ( note: they may look different in each one)
There are two kinds of widescreen that a camera can shoot - anamorphic and letterboxed. Anamorphic will fill the entire 16:9 frame. Letterboxed simply adds black bars to the standard 4:3 frame.
Many cameras will only shoot letterboxed. And even those that will shoot anamorphic will still offer the letterboxed option. Check your camera's specs to see which you have.
