I clicked on the Sequence and got its properties.
But as you can see, it won't let me edit the Pixel Aspect Ratio. Why are some properties not editable, and how can I make them editable?
You cannot change the PAR in DV pal. It is a default setting.
Is this CS6? What is the issue you are facing?
If this is CS6 you cannot change sequence settings (that feature was added in later versions).
You need to make a new sequence or custom one and copy everything over.
The PAR of my video is D1/DV PAL 1.067, and it looks correct in CS3.
The PAR in CS6 (above) is 1.0940 and looks squashed.
Adobe changed the par in I think it was CS4.
Show screenshot entire UI with clip selected in the project window in list view and preview area turned on.
Yes it was CS4. OMG. Haven't thought about that in ages. All the Adobe help files that explained this are dead links. The one that goes somewhere is to the current Aspect Ratio help page.
My favorite article on the "real" pars; guaranteed to make your head spin. 1.067 is the "old" par.
In any event, I'm not remembering how to fix this! There is no option in the interpret footage box for your PAR.
I like to see a screenshot on how things are squished.
Might be the aspect ratio in not recognized and the clip has to be interpreted manually.
Ah, thanks, I got it. In the Interpret footage, it for some reason thought the clip was NTSC (see below). I changed it to PAL.
