What aspect ratio problems are you having?

Compressors iPhone preset should work fine.

Hi Daniel.
Sorry it took so long to get back to your question. The aspect looks stretched on the horizontal plane when loaded onto my iphone. They also look stretched when I play them back in ituned prior to loading onto my phone.
Thank you.
Jim

You can just use the iPod/iPhone defaults in Compressor 3 - they should automatically letterbox your HD footage or there is an option to anamorph the shots - if it isn't happening change the manually set it. This is what I have been doing the last few days (NB my footage is either widescreen PAL (576/50i) or 1080/50i)

Copied the H.264 for iPod video and iPhone 640x480 (found under Apple > Apple Devices)

Changed "Device" to iPhone (Local/WiFi)
Changed "Aspect Ratio" to 16:9 (480x270)
Changed "Frame Rate" to 25

This is giving me really good results and the beauty is the iPhone screen is 480x320 so it is basically a native format for the screen without the need to up or down scale. You do get black bars top and bottom as the iPhone screen is 3:2 (1.5:1) not 16:9 (1.77:1) but there should be no stretching.

Hope this helps.
