    Hey mattmatt, there is!!! I have two Edius t-shirts. I wear them all the time & love 'em! I got them at the NAB in Vegas in April.

    With any edius Project, the Project settings will rule - and the footage on the timeline will be adjusted to suite (on your ext monitor)

    1280x720 footage is square pixels

    960x720 DVCPRO HD uses anamorphic pixels (1.5)

    I did a test with stills and it wasn't what I expected...

    The 1280x720 sq still displayed correctly (but must have been adjusted) with no cropping or shrinking!!!????

    The 960x720 DVCPRO still was slightly letterboxed!!!???? (I had to click properties and tell it be pixel aspect of 1.5)

    Shouldn't it have been the other way round? Since the project settings are 960x720 (1.5) ?

  • 720P HDV HQ footage on 720P DVCPRO HD timeline

    I'm wondering how Edius deals with 720P HDV footage which is 1280 x 720 (converted to HQ BTW) on a 720P DVC PRO HD timeline which is 960 x 720.

    Does it automatically crop the 1280 x 720 HDV HQ footage of just show the DVC PRO 960x720 footage as a different pixel aspect to get the true 1280 x 720 size? (square pixel modified to get the correct aspect ratiomaybe?)

    In other words what am I seeing coming out of Edius through the NX card on a TV monitor, is the footage true 1280x720 or only the 960x720 that is shown in the properties tab of the DVC PRO 720P footage (shot with an HVX 202 BTW).

    I am wanting to understand this because I will be editing my next project in DVC PRO HD 720P shot with an HVX 202 but will also be using a lot of footage shot with a JVC GY HD101 on the same timeline.
