  • 2.35 aspect ratio view on avid

    Hello, I am currently working on a project that is meant to be shown in 2.35 aspect ratio. So far, I have been working with a filler that creates letterbox to 2.35. However, the main editor would like to have the monitor set to 2.35 instead of working with a filler in the timeline as it can be annoying...

  • File based insert edit ignores output mask

    I'm using the file based insert edit (which is mostly great!) but it ignores the output mask despite selecting 'enable mask margins' in the export settings. When I play the file back the insert edit has worked but there's no letterboxing so it suddenly flips from my correct 2.39 letterbox...

  • Center keep Size to Pillarbox/Letterbox

    Hello. We have a lot of RED material from a movie transcoded in 36 NDxHD The original media from RED is 4k 2.33 format The RED material was set (i think, by the AVID default settings) in "center keep size", so it crop a bit from sides. We transcode all the material and then realize it was croping...

  • Re: Avid DVD by Sonic - Cannot change to WIDEscreen

    [quote user="Pheral"] This behavior could actually be due to a setting on the TV itself. [/quote] Boy do I feel sheepish... Yws that was the answer! I put in one of my previous drafts let the movie start playing and saw the same old Pan and Scan, hit the DVD player's menu button (not disc...

  • Flexible letterbox effect for 2.35:1 ?

    I have HD 1080 footage, and I want to reduce it to 2.35:1 (while keeping the final format 16:9, hence using letterboxing) The useful region within the 16:9 image is variable, depending on the scene content, so I can not simply apply a static letterbox mask. I was hoping to use the Pan & Scan effect...

  • Aspect Ratio

    Before v5 it was possible to switch the aspect ratio in an HD project from 16x9 to 4x3. This is no longer possible. You might think that this is logical because HD is always 16x9. But if you are using the pan and scan effect to do a down convert to 4x3 - or a letter box effect to convert to 16x9 inside...
  • Capture in downconverted Anamorphic (squeezed) or Letterbox if editing in HDV?

    In searching the forums, I see that many people recommended to capture HDV downconverted but anamorphic (squeezed) instead of letterbox and edit in DV25. Well how about if I am capturing in HDV and editing in HDV with no downconverting? Would you still recommend I capture in anamorphic rather than letterbox...

  • Video Effect for visibly changing aspect ratio?

    Is there an effect that can change the aspect ratio of a clip from, say 4:3 to 2.35:1, in the middle of the clip? So that it would visibly happen in the middle of the clip? Essentially, I want to have black bars slide in from the top and bottom of the frame to change the aspect ratio mid-shot. What would...

  • Letterbox on Export Does Not Work

    Hello, Recently, I'm having trouble exporting my HDV project to a letterboxed SD, for DVD, in Quicktime format. For some reason Avid's "letterbox" (export...size/maintain proportion...) option does not work. The closest thing I can get is through DV export but it does not look right...
