Question, I am using FCP's Compressor for this SD anamorphic job that I just completed with the edit. The final end will be YouTube, I have exported (from FCP) a uncompressed 8bit file of the project and have been attempting compression in Compressor with out any luck at all.
When I bring the file into Compressor it keeps exporting it as 4x3 in stead of 16x9 anamorphic. I know that the original uncompressed 8bit file that is being used is in the correct format (853x480)...
Actually, I'm willing to bet that the original file is 720x480 but being displayed at 853x480.
When you get your video into compressor, go to the geometry tab.
It should detect that the frame size is 720x480 and has a pixel aspect ratio of 1.2
IF NOT, from the drop down for Frame size, choose CUSTOM and change the pixel aspect to NTSC CCIR 601/DV 16:)
