I was under the impression that once captured I should be able to playback an SD anamorphic clip in a 16:9 aspect ratio but I'm struggling a little and need help. Here's the details.
I've got a Sony HDW-M2000P VTR connected via the SD-SDI to a Black Magic Decklink Studio capture card.
On tape I've got a Digi-Beta with anamorphic content.
I'm using the BlackMagic Media Express software to capture the video onto a MacPro. In the software preferences I've selected "use SD anamorphic" and the preview window is correctly displaying the widescreen image. I'm out putting a ProRes 422 (LT) file (we will later edit the content in FCP-X)
When I capture the content and playback via QuickTime It is still in 4:3 and squeezed and I see no option of changing this aspect ratio.
There are other System Preferences related to the BlackMagic Capture card but changing these has no effect on my file.
Any help on how to correctly capture and playback the SD-anamorphic with the set up I have would be greatly appreciated.
