I just setup a project with anamorphic video with a 2x squeeze.
In sequence settings the Pixel Aspect Ratio is set to Anamorphic 2:1. Everything looks good in the timeline!
Original camera resolution is 2944x2160, with picture image res of 2880x2160. So I've set the sequence resolution to 2880x2160. with the 2.1 pixel aspect. Everything looks as it should.
Now how should I export this for delivery?? Lets say I'd like to export a ProRes for Davinci? Do I export the squeezed video?
The other route I need is to export for streaming online (youtube/Vimeo), directly from Premiere.
I have done a few different things and it seems to be doing funny things - the export doesn't seem as sharp.
For example, I set export to 1920x1080 and changed the pixel aspect ratio to Square. So it is letterboxed, but the export doesn't look as sharp as the original video file. Weird.
I also need to figure out the best way of cropping the image to a proper 2.39 ratio not the original 2.67 that I am working with now. But first things, first, How should I export!? Please help.
