Stills wont get the right aspect
on Nov 4, 2008 at 10:19:02 am

Hi!
When I import eg. an jpeg and want to keep its original aspect ratio I choose the project aspect ratio which is the only import solution to have it imported as its native size. It says it has its native resolution - but it is bigger to the sides than the original.
The settings is 16:9 and in the projectsettings it is also what is chosen.
How will I be able to get it in the right dimensions without having to change Y-scale seperately.

Hi Henrik,

What application are you using? RED?

Thanks,

Peter.

Okay ... so what you need to do is this:

• open the preferences panel (edit>preferences)
• go to the import tab in the preferences pane
• set the aspect pop-up to square pixels
• close the preferences pane
• go to the preview drop down menu and select preview>preview with square pixels
• open the project settings (edit>project settings)
• set the video aspect pop-up to square pixels

With these settings imported stills should not be changed to fit the project on import and they will appear square on-screen.

Please let me know if this helps.

Cheers,

Peter.

Also ... you might want to click on the face sub-track of the imported still image to make sure that the image is not stretched - native size and imported size as listed in the controls window should be identical. If they are not, then you can change this by clicking on the aspect pop-up in the controls window and selecting either square pixels or use project aspect ratio.

Cheers,

Peter.
