Changing Pixel Aspect Ratio in an Output Module
on Dec 13, 2012 at 7:57:36 pm

I am versioning out some graphics for HD and SD broadcast. I have output modules for each but because the pixel aspect ratios are different, I have to render two separate compositions, thus doubling my render times.

Is there a way to change the pixel aspect ratio of a composition in an output module?

You're absolutely right that HD and SD are two entirely different aspect ratios, and there is no way around that fact. There isn't a one-size-fits-all solution.

Just nest you HD comp inside an SD comp, and make your choice: center punch or letterbox.
