Hi to the forum, and merry Christmas,
This is my third post here and i am so glad that always i got all the info i was looking for.
To just dive right in,
I decided to capture VHS tapes, with virtualdub and after a lot of search i had done a pretty good job with filters codecs and etc.
I only have a question when it comes to premiere trim and export sequence part.
I figured out that i have two option in virtualdub for capture pin resolution.
One is 640x480 or 720x576. I will explain in a little what i mean.
I use TU-R422 BT.601 (i think smrhing like that) loseless codec for compression and i get a 10gb file for a 45' tape.
The only thing i want to figure out is the res and the PAR.
When i select the 640x480 res the video output is 4:3 and recognized as Square pixels by premiere and it doesnt look transformed to me, but with 720x576 I get a little more content and a little more bars (its fine i will crop them afterwards) and the PAR is DV/D1 PAL 1.0940 and when i playbacked its 5:4 and a little stretched and transformed.
The signal is PAL_B and i assume that with 640x480 the virtualdub does a resize by itself.
to sumup i want to record in DV/D1 PAL 1.0940 and right in premiere to trim and export it as X*576 or 640*480 in 1:1 PAR Square pixels!
How can i achieve this ?
