Hi chaps- I have not a lot of need to produce projects widescreen but now have a job to do - I have traditionally worked at 1024x576 and, indeed, older versions of AE list this in presets (PAL D1/DV Widescreen Sq Pixels) but in version 9 (CS4) the same preset is 1050 wide ... now I've read an excellent online explanation about this ( ) but I'm a little concerned that if I upload my video to a stock video site listing the video as 1050 wide may put some people off buying ... any thoughts please ? Regards Roger

Hi Roger,

It's a crazy world of Aspect Ratios.. I would honestly render it at 1050 x 576 and put a not saying it's rendered to adobe / BBC standard..

But if it really is bothering you.. just change your project setting to 1024 x 576.

and render it like that.

hope that helps

Thanks Alex, yes I'll probably do that and also try and get to the tech guys at the library and ask them, all their 'guidelines' for video mention 1024 so I'll question them ... Roger
