    Re: Exporting in 16X9

    You may have it:

     

    Format/Frame rate of source is:  1080iHD at 29.97 fps  (mediainfo says it is MPEG4, Quicktime)

    Format/Frame rate of project is:  30i NTSC at 30 fps  (I don;t see a setting for 1080i at 29,97).

     

    However, 16X9 format is selected.  I haven't worked in SD for years.  So it would seem that as long as HD format is being used, that should mean 16X9.

    No, but I haven't worked in SD for years.  Everything is HD, just different flavors. Thanks though.

    Seems like you have some different codecs on your timeline if so.

    Do a mixdown to DNx and replace before exporting SAS

    Maybe Quicktime cannot read that flag
    Normally, it should, in my experience.

    However, if you have QT Pro, open the exported QT file in QT Player, hit CTRL-J, select the video track, untick the box that maintains aspect ratio, and set the display size to 1024x576 (for PAL widescreen) or 864x486 (for NTSC widescreen), and save the file.

    hi,

    In my experience, at that point I select customoption and then I can choose 1024x576 in Pal

    But custom exports use the notorious QT engine for transcoding. Anamorphic 16:9 is simply a matter of display aspect ratio, not actual pixels in the source.

    Re: Exporting in 16X9

    So far, the only suggestion that worked was a video mixdown to DNX, then exporting to QT movie. That worked fine. Certainly wouldn't have thought this would be so difficult. 

    Special thanks for the help with the Avid script file feature. I may have access to a script supervisor on my next project and that should make things a lot more feasible.  

    Appreciate the assistance.
