looks okay in compressor, squished in quicktime
on Apr 19, 2009 at 10:24:49 am

couple of questions. I've been taking clips off of a dvd using cinematize pro... I have to do this because the client is not in possession of the master copies.

Anyhow, my first question is what codec should I use to extract? I need the file to be in a quicktime container, but I can extract using dv ntsc, prores, uncompressed, etc. I'm assuming extracting uncompressed from a dvd would be similar to extracting lossless from a mp3 audio cd... or am I wrong?

Next, some of my files are coming out looking real squished in quicktime, but when I bring them into cinema tools or compressor the preview looks the way it ought to. Is their a quick fix to this? I'm guessing quicktime is just interpreting the footage incorrectly?

thanks in advance!
