I've been working on an annimated film which was made on an old Amiga 2000. The captures were brought to me in full HD 1920 x 1080, but the original (having been started in 1993) is of course in 4 - 3 fomat. The pictures are terrific. I imported the captures into a 1920 x 1080 project and re sized the width to revert to original dimensions and it looks fine on the timeline. The project is complete and ready for export to MP4 but, not being an expert on formats I'm not sure which option to choose.  The media encoder suggests it should be 1080 x 1440! But I'm left wondering if this is correct?  Any advice.  Thanks.  Charles.

Might look ok in the Program monitor but you cannot convert 1920x1080 to the original 4:3 (without cutting top/bottom off) that is why it looks distorted. 1440x1080 1.33 is a total different format. You also put 60 fps in a 25 fps sequence and exported a progressive timeline to an interlaced one. You will have to set up a 1920x1080 progressive par 1.0 60 fps sequence. And it will look like this: Export in 1920x1080 progressive par 1.0 If you want to keep the 4:3 setting 1440x1080 par 1.0 migh...

Please do as I ask for all three files.

Your aspect ratio is wrong.

If they are HDV video files then 1440 X 1080i is correct. You can drop it into a 1080 60P sequence.

Una imagen de 1993 en definitiva es NTSC 720x480 proporcion de pixels 0,9

Si lo quieres exportar en full HD deber convertirlo a Progresivo (porque tu video es entrelazado)
y dejarlo en proporcion de pixel cuadrado. Aunque tendras los bordes negros.
Yo te recomendaria 1280x720 como maximo.

Thank you. The images were captured from an Amiga 2000 (in the UK) in March this year and converted into MP4 during capture.

This is in Treeview:

AnnBens_0-1624727586120.png

But I am guessing its a 4:3 image in a 1920x1080 PAR 1.0 setting.

Does the output image on the left in your first screenshot look correct?

Even your screenshot itsself looks distorted.

Is this CS6?

This is from CS6. I'll put up the Treeview. One segment only (they are all identical with no audio) The image doesn't look correct, but looks correct  in monitor, and in a test export at 1440. The original footage (From an Amiga 2000) was obviously in 4 - 3, but those who captured it did so in 16 -9. which is why we needed to convert it to original for editing. It's not my product, but the guy who made it has taken 27 years to complete, and |I'm keen to give him as good a result as is possible in very odd circumstances.

Export in 1920x1080 progressive par 1.0

 

If you want to keep the 4:3 setting 1440x1080 par 1.0 might work but

no guarantee it will play in all players/tv.

I would keep 16:9 as that is the present day norm.

Thanks for all that Ann. I'll give it a go as advised at 60fpm etc.  Never had to deal with anything like this (27 year old) format before, always just straightforward HD camera material which is much easier to understand and deal with. 

Cheers,

Charles
