Export HDV to WMV wrong Aspect Ratio
on Jul 3, 2012 at 7:37:10 am

Hi

I'm working on an HDV project, the client has requested a .wmv file.

I have Flip4Mac installed but whenever I attempt to export a .wmv from FCP the outputted file is 4:3.

I've exported .wmv from FCP before (1024/576 project) so what can be happening here with the HDV format that's causing the wrong aspect ratio to be exported?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Sequence Settings:

Frame Size: 1440x1080 / HD (1440x1080)(16:9)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: HD (1440x1080)
Anamorphic: Unchecked
Field Dominance: Upper (Odd)
Compressor: HDV 1080i50

Macbook Pro / OSX 10.6.4 / 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 / 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3

FCP Studio 7.0.2

1024x576 is SD PAL anamorphic not HD.

What version of flip4mac do you have?
The Studio Pro HD version($179)is the only version that I know of that will do HD.

FCP recognizes the rectangular pixels of HDV and should be displaying your 1440(anamorphic) footage correctly on your system and/or HD monitor.

My guess is Flip4mac is seeing 1440x1080 as 4x3(which from a pixels only standpoint it is). This is most likely do to not having the HD version of Flip4mac which can process the rectangular pixels of your 1440 footage into a square pixel HD wmv.

Of course, that makes sense! I just assumed if F4M could see the 16:9 format it could export it too.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm downloading the trail version of F4M HD now.

Thanks again.
