I am having trouble formatting an old DVD 4 x 3 to run normally in Premier Pro CS 5.5.2 and then uploaded to You Tube, but, I cannot get it right, the video looks squashed ? Attached is the You Tube link . I just cannot get it right on the timeline, any ideas ?

What are your export and sequence settings? You probably have the wrong pixel aspect ratio.

Tero,

You are right, but, how do you change the settings from standard ?

I certainly have the wrong pixel settings, but, how do you change it, Ann suggests Export to 788x576 with square pixels and I think it will fix the problem, but, how do you change the Sequence settings, there appears no manual changes possible ?

It was videod in standard 4 x 3 , it was a long time ago before widescreen .

It should not actually be displayed 4x3, it’s really 4x3 anamorphic or widescreen, thus you should be encoding to the PAL full screen aspect ration of 720x576 (with non/square pixels I think).

Ann,

I do not know how to "Export to 788x576 with square pixels" and I have gone onto Sequence settings ?

Stan,

I finally tried using Movie Studio 14.0 Platinum which I hardly rarely use . Put the DVD in the program and it automatically imported as the correct format, then sent it to You Tube and I extracted all the stills I required within 10 minutes, I was truly amazed. There was no distortion in the movie or the stills for printing in Photoshop.

I would still like to know how you would do it in Premiere Pro ?

Thanks

I then extracted the Movie Studio v14 Platinum mpeg file and imported it into Premiere Pro and it worked perfectly, the right format and no distortion in the final video ? Everything worked including all the effects. Huuuuuuuuuum, why is it so ?

Yes Ann,

You were right, Export to 788x576 with square pixels. But, I used Movie Studio HD Platinum v 14, it just did it automatically and then automatically uploaded the file to You Tube, the the video looks spot on.

At my age I did not even have to think about doing much. It was over 15 years ago, and my wife who is from Holland looked pretty good from an old Sony Hi-8 tape recording.

Thanks
