  1. I realize that Avanti is an old app and no more updated.
    I just want to use it as the 2nd option after Handbrake because in Avanti I have the option to brighten and sharpen the video.

    My situation is like this:
    The video source is mp4 1920x1080.
    When I shoot the video, I always keep in mind that I am going to make the encoded video as 720x720...
    so the things which are happening I always keep in the center of the rectangular grid helper on the camera.

    I use the crop-pad-scale option in Avanti like this :

    With that kind of setting, I am able to get just the "middle" section of the video in a size 720x720.
    I thought the setting is something that the encoder did not encode 600 px from the left-right and 180 px from top-bottom from the video source, just encode the middle 720x720 portion.
    But when I play the video in MPC-HC, it show a black bar on the left and right :

    The media info say that the video is 720*720 (16:9).

    On the other hand, with Handbrake (I do the crop setting also in Handbrake),
    MPC-HC doesn't show the left/right black bar :

    And the media info say the video is 720*720 (1.000).

    So my question is :
    how do I make the encoded video is a "real" 720x720 size in Avanti, just like the Handbrake encoded video?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you in advanced.

    What does that "Source" dropdown menu say (the one just below) to the 720x720 = 1:1?

    It might be a display aspect ratio setting.
