Netta YusefPAL Encode - Correct Ratio and Dimension
by on Mar 24, 2016 at 12:40:47 am

I have PAL Videos 720x576 that I need to encode to meet specs for different platforms. I'm having trouble maintaining those dimensions with a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio. Anyone know how to fix this problem? These are the specs I need to encode to:
Apple ProRes
720x576 (4:3) - 12:11 PAR Digital (1.09 Standard PAL) or
720x576 (16:9) - 16:11 PAR Digital (1.45) (Widescreen PAL)

I have FCP 7, X, and Adobe Suite, Movavi Encoder, MPEG Streamclip. No AVID :(
I've tried all of those and can't figure it out.
I need to maintain a 720x576 dimension in QT 7 and 4:3 or 16:9 ratio in Media Info.

Anyone can help with this?

If encoding files to be viewed online/on computers, many software players do not respect the actual pixel aspect ratio (PAR) of the file and just assume square pixels (1.0 PAR). For PAL Widescreen, encode at 1024x576 with 1.0 PAR and that will provide correct 16:9 playback.

Thanks

Hey Jeff, thanks for your quick response. I need to get 720x576...I can't deliver a 1024x576.

The resolution doesn't change but the pixel aspect ratio does. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel_aspect_ratio

Tero, are you saying it's impossible to reach these specs: 720x576 4:3 or 16:9?
This is what I'm thinking but not sure why delivery specs from SONY would be so impossible.
