green line on side of frame
on Aug 18, 2010 at 8:42:43 pm

I'm having the same problem as this poster:
http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/8/1084593

But I think I need a different solution.

My source video is
1081X812
23.98 fps
Apple ProRes

I'm trying to end up at
960X720
23.98 fps
MPEG-4 or H.264

The film is destined for YouTube.

I tried exporting from Final Cut Pro at 960X720, I tried using geometry in Compressor using padding or cropping to conform the image to 4:3. Nothing is working.

Maybe I didn't understand the post I linked to. 960 and 720 are both divisible by 4. So shouldn't I be fine?

Please help. Thank you.

Cory

I'm just passing along information I read on a Vimeo forum. I have not verified the accuracy, but it's something you may want to try.

Someone there said that your horizontal resolution needs to be evenly divisible by 16.

Again, they could be full of lutefisk, but they said that since they started following that guideline, they never had the green line problem again.

960 is divisible by 16. So they are indeed full of lutefisk.

961X720 seems to have worked.

Scratch that, that didn't help at all. Please someone help me out of the nightmare that has been this project.
