    Aspect ratio

    texmant123 Level 1

      I searched through the forums and couldn't find this specific situation.

       

      I have footage taken in 16:9 aspect ratio.  It is standard def.  I captured it with Premiere Pro 5 and then tried to edit it.  The video itself is 720X480.  It plays in 16:9 AR with media players.  But, when I upload it in Premiere Pro, it is squished like 4:3. I have 1 sequence with 720X480 WIDESCREEN (.9091) properties and I just get black bars on the left and right and the image is squished.  I have another sequence with 720X480 STANDARD SCREEN (.9091) properties and I get NO black bars, just a squished image.

       

      I wish I could upload my screen capture video, but hopefully I didn't leave out any details and hopefully someone can help without degrading the video quality by stretching video or something like that.
