Bizarre Square Pixel Format?
on Jan 7, 2011 at 10:29:56 pm


a production house has delivered material - supposedly from a digibeta tape - in a pixel-format I have never seen before, and thus I smell a skunk... i.e. someone made a mistake.

The PAL file is automatically flagged in AE (CS4) as being:
720 x 576 (1.0) - SQUARE pixels.
This is not a graphic but live footage. I always assumed 768 x 576 is the proper size for square pixel PAL... or am I wrong?
What could be the source of this material: the bums at the production house are playing dumb... no info there.
Should I change the material interpretation to standard PAL 1.09 ? This stuff has to be rendered on the weekend, and nobody is claiming responsibilty for the client.
Any hints? Somebody seen this format before?
