I'm curently having issue rendering my video with Media Encoder from After Effects. I don't know anything about video rendering so excuse my lack of knowlegde.
So, I'm trying to render a small promo clip for our trade show for a 1920x1080 screen. But whatever I do when I send the video to Media Encoder, the format gets "squashed" in height, leaving me with a deformed final render. I've look up so many solution online nothing that I do change this. Media Encoder keep resizing my video. What strange to is that when I render directly from After Effects, the video keep its aspect ratio. I realy don't know what to do from here and hope that someone can help.
I'm gonna leave some screenshots here (in french) to help but like I said, I'm don't know much about video rendering and format.
Under your video tab. There is an option called Aspect: (Currently saying HD Anamorphic 1080 (1.333). Change that to Square Pixels (1.0) and see if that fixes it.
I've tried this and many other "Aspect" but it never changes, sometimes it adds black bars to the sides but the video is still being deformed.
Sorry, that it didn't work. I have one more solution.
So in your After Effects comp setting, it says Pixel Aspect Ratio: HDV 1080/DVCPRO HD try setting that to Square Pixels (1.0) as well.
Note: This might mess up the layout of the comp. So back up your save.
Ok thank you. I'll try this and comeback if the problem as been resolved.
It worked! I changed the Aspect Ratio of my composition to Squared Pixel and then rendered in Squared Pixel. I had to adjust my content a bit but everything worked out fine.
Awesome glad to hear it!
