  • Importing in 16x9

    Is there a way to change the default aspect ratio when importing clips. Sometimes clips native in 16x9 import in 4x3 format, causing me to have to go into properties and set them back to 16x9.

    Often times I have to bring in several graphics into my bin at once that are built for 16x9 but come in 4x3.

    Is there a default setting that can change this?

    when bin is in detail view, you can change all clips in the bin in one hit to 16:9

    EDIUS will only show clips with an aspect flag correctly, what software created the clips?

      Thanks for the tip, that works great!

      The biggest problem is importing graphics. Our news stations' parent company Gannett uses Axis Graphics to make the clips. When the Editors bring in all the clips they need for the show, it took a lot of time changing the properties of each clip to 16x9 from 4x3.

      This fix will save us a ton of time. Thanks again.

          Hi Darryl.

          Try this.

          Settings, System Settings, Importer/Exporter, Still Image, Adjust Aspect.

          It looks as if this option should allow for individual switching for seperate formats, due to the File Type drop down, but it does not seem to. It would apper to be a global option, which is fine. I think you may need to re-start for the option to activate. This option ia just the same as stretch to fit. You should only need to use this when in SD, as most graphic formats do not store pixel aspect data when storing anammorphic data inside a 4:3 screen aspect. There are some 720 and 1080 effective anamorphic ratios, like 1440 and 960, which you may well have to do this for. Although these may be seen correctly or Edius makes a better guess as these would be assumed to be HD formats anyway, and there is no 4:3 in the world of HD.

          Hope this helps.
