Pixal Aspect Ratio Correction question
on Mar 27, 2011 at 7:59:21 pm

Newbie question,
I'm just trying to correctly output a circle I created from photoshop CS3, to Apple Motion3, & have the circle remain a circle in Motion, not an egg shape, even after I output it from motion. I've been watching a bunch of Richards tutorials about this,but obviously I'm missing something. I've creatived a new document in CS3 with dimentions of 1280x720 & pixal aspect ratio set to D1/DV NTSC Widescreen 1.2, I then create a circle, every thing looks fine in CS3 with the pixal aspect ratio correction on ( & here is where my problem must be). I save this as a PNG file to the desktop & import it into my new 1280x 720 canvas in Motion3, but of course I don't have a circle, I have a egg shape. What
other settings do I need to adjust on output from CS3 ??? I feel like this has been talked about alot, but I'm
just missing I piece of the puzzel.

thanks in advance

You didn't watch tute close enough.

HD at that size is square pxels.

You are applying widescreen SD PAR to an HD canvas.

STICK WITH THE PRESETS in the new document window
