  1. Hi there

    I have this question which I've asked on other forums but never received an answer to, so hopefully someone can help me here?

    Ive been trying to tweak various videos I have in the old 4:3 format (PAL & NTSC) but the rendered outputs are all elongated a bit more at the sides, making the characters fatter?

    Its happening no matter which FX I use. Any suggestions?

    Easy

    1 - Open Vegas, File, Properties and check like screenshot (Choose your desired resolution)



    2 - File, Render As



    You will have Full 1080p 4:3 aspect Ratio, no fatter image.

  3. I'm afraid that doesn't answer my question. However, I have discovered through using another program that some of the NTSC videos I tried are not 720x480 but actually 638x480! It seems many other programs including Vegas, VLC, & MediaInfo don't tell me that?

    Easy to solve.

    Do you want the correct resolution? Use the MEDIAINFO program. It comes too built-in to some players like MPC and VLC has its own.

    It's now 2 pixels less which doesn't change anything if you use 640x480.

  5. As you will see above I used MediaInfo but even it didn't give the correct info?

    Use mediainfo to find the specs of your source file. Put it into text view and post the info here
