Decompressing Old Tape
on May 18, 2012 at 9:18:54 am

Hi, i'm trying to use AME to decompress some video form an old Sony Camcorder.
(if i understood correctly, this will really help with editing, applying effects, system responce, rendering speed, etc)

Original: DV Type 1, Pal, 720x576, 25fps, lower, 48kHz stereo.

Output: Uncompressed Microsoft AVI, Custom...
720x575, 25fps, progressive q=100, 48kHz stereo. Aspect Pal Wide.

So is this the best way forward ?
My attemps to edit the original ended with my pc getting slower and slower to the point of give-up!

Any advise or tips please. ?!?!?!

PS i found the answer to my original question elsewhere in this marvelous website.

EDIT: something is still wrong. Its looks great in AME Output, but the resulting file is letterboxed. That is, it has black bands across top and bottom.

What am i missing?

MORE INFO: when i open the Uncompressed file in PPro i see in properties the Aspect Ratio is 1.0, not the 1.4 i chose.

Is this a bug in AME, why is it ignoring my Aspect Ratio setting?

(the edit button is missing!)

UPDATE: I gave up with Uncompressed MS AVI, and am now using Microsoft AVI, Preset:custom
720x576, 25fps, Lower Q=100, NO CODEC, Aspect Pal Wide (1.4),
48kHz stereo.

The result? It looks like crap and its too thin
(and file size is now humongous!)

I'm about to give up with Adobe !!!


(oh i see, after i press reply, i can access the edit button - my bad!)
