Vegas stretching avi?
on Jan 1, 2016 at 8:14:18 am

Hello,

I have been tinkering with deshaker in virtualdub some. My source video is .mov files, deshaker kicks out the files as an avi. I wanted to load both the original .mov sample and the resulting desker-ized (deshook? heh,) videos in vegas and do a split screen mask to show the difference, but everytime I drop the .avi version into vegas it is stretched.

The initial files are both 1440x1080. They both play normally in WMP, media player classic, VLC player, in all there 4x3 glory.

But when I drop them in vegas, they take on different personalities, the ,mov looks normal, (shows up 4x3 pillerboxed) but the .avi file fills and stretches the video to the same size, but without the pillars.

Where am I missing something? I tinkered with the "pan and crop" settings, looking at aspect ratios and things, but to ne effect. I also tried matching and not matching project settings for both.

In the Vegas Project Properties, make sure that
Adjust source media to better match project or render settings
is ticked.

Right-click on the Event and open the Properties. In the Media tab, see what the Pixel Aspect Ratio is set to. Vegas Pro might be guessing that 1440x1080 is HDV and using a 1.333 PAR. if so, change it back to 1.0 and it should right itself.

If and when what JR suggests works, you could save settings to video profiles for future auto-detection (Properties > Media, Stream, Diskette Icon).

That was exactly it John, thank you once again! And I'll give that a try Jorma, thank you also!
