compressor will not maintain aspect ratio (web)
on Feb 4, 2007 at 10:17:54 pm

I have a 24p movie in FCP 5.1.2 and compressor 2.3 mac g5 dual.
Every time I try and export with comp. for web download or streaming
compressor keeps giving me 640x480, I have set 25%-50% of source and it keeps
giving me 4:3 (all footage is 16x9)
Should I be converting my 23.98 16x9???
any ideas?
I have converted 16x9 1080i to 25% wide format with no problem.
Thanks...

Yeah, if you're source is anamorphic while editing you will need to compress to a square pixel size when encoding for the web with most codecs.
