I have a compilation I put together of scanned pages of a photo album. Unfortunately they are in standard 4:3 format and the pixel aspect is 1.0. I love the new Pan and Scan (except the time to render scenes when using it) and if I create either a DVD in Widescreen or an AVCHD file it converts to HD\Widescreen format and the pan and scan misses the photos from when originally applied.
I changed the aspect ratio of the photos but the stretched look just doesn't make it. But the quality of the AVCHD file is so much better. Is there a way to bring these together so the end result is a much sharper scene and the Pan and Scan are true to the original creation? I tried many different formats but other then either DVD 4:3 or MPEG NTSC Standard I have not come up with a workable solution.
Well, if your photos are 4:3 and your video frame is 16:9, your only choice, if you want to fill the frame, is to lose some off the top and bottom of each picture. Does that work for you?
You don't say what the resolution is of your photo. (For a hi-def video, it should not be much larger than 2000x1500 pixels in size.) But once you've applied the size settings so that your photo fills the frame, you can apply that same scale to all of the photos on your timeline using the method I explained in your other post.
