We are using CatDV to manage a collection of HD video taken with a Sony XDCAM EX3 camera. We have a Matrox compressHD card which we want to use to create H.264 proxies.
I am running into problems maintaining the correct aspect ratio (16:9).
On the Preferences/Previews & Thumbnails window I need to specify a size. But it only allows me to specify the width and then automatically sets the height by itself. It will not let me set a size with 16:9 aspect ratio.
I then select the "Custom" option, where I then have a number of options to specify the size.
It seems that these two things are conflicting with each other. I cannot seem to produce HD proxy files with the size I want (512x288). Does anyone know how I can do this?
