Anybody have a workflo example for geting After Effects to render out 16:9 files that media 100 will be able to put on a 16:9 time line?

Thanks in advance

Set up AEs comp as PAL or NTSC widescreen (720*576 or 720*486). Render out into the Media 100 720 codec as usual. When importing into Media 100, make sure that in the import window you set these clips as widescreen (16/9).

That's the first thing I tried. I ended up having to render as an Animation from a comp set to DV widescreen. Media 100 codec would not let me do it.

Where did the Media 100 codec not let you do this? If your comp is 720*576/486 (widescreen) and you render to the Media 100 720 codec there should be no problems. As I said, only make sure that the "Aspect Ratio" is set to "Use 16:9" when importing the rendered file into Media 100.

I could not drop it on the timeline. It was rendered 16:9 in AE with media 100 720 codec but that was not enough. The only thing that would work was Animation. The hardware was set to 16:9 when I imported it.

As I said, when importing make sure that "Aspect Ratio" is set to "Use 16:9" in Media 100s Import dialog box.

Aspect ratio is and always has been 16:9 in the media100 hardware...hence the problem.

It is okay to have this set up to 16:9 in the hardware settings, but you also need to select 16:9 in the Import window (CMD-I) when importing your rendered clips. AE does not write an aspect ratio flag into the rendered files, therefore they get imported as 4:3 into Media 100 i (btw, in Media 100 HD you can change from 4:3 to 16:9 and back easily).

Media100i 7.5

File>>Import>>[Scale Image Box] *Fit to Video, or *Retain size - one of those should make the difference. Either fitting it to 16:9 if that's what your hardware settings are, or else retaining 16:9 if that's what it was exported as.
Try both, get lucky.

As Floh has been saying, it's all about the settings in the import window when you import the clip into M100.
