Can Someone Tell Me What I'm Doing Wrong?
on Nov 21, 2010 at 5:06:37 pm

I exported a quicktime from FCP with res of 720x480 anamorphic. When I bring it into AE, the image is squeezed. The comp is 720x480, but the image looks skinny. None of the presets or pixel aspect ration pulldowns seem to fix the image. If I select the widescreen preset, the comp size remains the same but the image is squeezed even more. The only thing that sort of works is if I make the width of the comp 853, and manually enlarge the width of the image. But that's cheating, and the width scale value is not at 100% (but at 118.5%), which will be a drag later if I need to do scale modifications. Can someone help? Thanks.

Have you clicked the pixel aspect ratio correction button? It's located below the comp viewer, and looks like this:

Your previews may look a little jagged with PAR correction on, but your renders will be fine.
