    If I'm converting this video with AVISynth and doing some other stuff in VDub with it at the same time, what should I resize this video to in order to be 1:1. Video will be a hard drive file played to my plasma tv. I've done this a lot before with HD digital content but not with a size measure like this file.

    Thanks.

  2. If you're using avisynth, you don't need to do anything else because it assumes "square pixels" by default

  3. Thanks. Kind of knew that but didn't think it was necessarily doing it right. Thought that AVISynth thought all files were 1:1, not that it set it properly. AVISynth script opening in VDub is coming up as 1280 x 536. Should I assume that's the correct 1:1 even though the file is supposedly 1280 x 536 at 2.35:1 display aspect and 0.985 pixel aspect?

    Yes.

    In this case that's a bunch of confusing mumbo-jumbo.

    1280/536=2.39:1 (Probably the most common aspect ratio these days)
    2.39x.985=2.35

  5. If you want to reproduce it like the source (which might be incorrect), you still don't do anything different in avisynth . You would encode with --sar 67:68

    Or leave it 1:1 square pixel, which would give 2.39:1 as manono explained

    Width / Height DAR / SAR ==> DAR = (Width * SAR) / Height

    In your case: DAR = (1280 * 67/68) / 536 = 2.35 ; which you already know from MediaInfo output.

    So with a SAR of 1:1 we have: Height = (Width * SAR) / DAR = (1280 * 1/1) / 2.35 544

    You should resize to 1280x544. I think it is a better choice than 1262x536 which, by the way, to be exact should be 1260*536. 1260 is a more exact number (536 * 2.35 = 1259.6) and it's mod 4 while 1262 is mod 2.

    I disagree. Why take a 1:1 1920x1080 Blu-Ray, crop the black bars and resize to 1280x536 (still 1:1) for internet distribution, and then add a PAR to have it play at the wrong aspect ratio? 2.35:1 isn't even used these days (assuming it's a relatively recent movie). If a PAR was added it's only because it was done by an incompetent encoder that didn't understand what he read or was told. The same principle applies if it was a 1080i or 720p capture from television.

    2.39:1 (~12:5): 35 mm anamorphic from 1970 onwards. Aspect ratio of current anamorphic (wide-screen) theatrical viewings. Often commercially branded as Panavision format or 'Scope. Specified as 2.40:1 for Blu-ray Disc film releases (1920800 resolution).

    If the PAR is wrong and the true DAR is 2.39, I totally agree with you!
