problems with aspect ratio in timelines
on Jan 7, 2006 at 3:34:18 pm

I've recently imported some video into my Encore project and put it into a timeline, however, the timeline automatically switches its aspect ratio to 16:9 widescreen. The video itself is 4:3 fullscreen, but the timeline changes the setting in the properties dialog and I can't change it manually because it's greyed out.

Any ideas?

Encore sets the timeline's aspect ratio to whatever it thinks the footage is. That's why you can't change it.

Click on the footage in the Project window, and choose File > Interpret Footage. Encore is probably mis-reading the aspect ratio of the footage, and you just need to change it in here.

I've read this in various places, but the option is always greyed out in both the File and right-click menus. I've tried in while it's in the timeline, in the project but not in a timeline, and about every other way you can think of. It's M2V footage straight from After Effects. It's 1.5 hours long.

I just thought of this. Since I rendered to a DVD compliant format, I didn't transcode it. Perhaps I need to transcode to interpret?
