16:9 ratio maintenance
on Sep 24, 2011 at 6:47:06 am

Hi friends, Im trying to export DV Pal 16:9 ratio footage from FCP 7, but at VTR monitor it shows squeezed image and so as the mirror image at LED. From VTR menu if select Edge crop it shows edge crop but mirror image still shows full frame squeezed, there's no letterbox output option via ilink. now i cant be sure of what im getting as ouput. I think im missing something or making a technical mistake. If anyone can identify or have any experience on this please let me know.

Im using Sony HVR N15 via ilink, 14 inch Sharp CTR monitor & FCP 7.

Eagerly waiting for reply.

All PAL is 720x576; it's a question on whether or not your monitor has a 16x9 switch, or your playback mechanism correctly returns it to it's proper anamorphic ratio. It would work on DVD where that can be flagged as part of the DVD.
