  • Flash ouput from Edius

    I'm still having issues trying to set the aspect ratio of an .flv file from Edius 4.24 ( Flash pro 8 as well for that matter )

    Starting with a 16x9 aspect MS DV file of a finished clip, I seem unable to produce an flv file that carries the 16x9 tag.

    This is true when published through the Flash 8 workflow to a final HTML page, despite ticking all the boxes that say preserve aspect ratio etc.

    There certainly appears to be no other way to do this than force a 16x9 aspect ratio in coding, although Adobe and everyone else appears to say that Flash players can recognise the original a/r of a clip after coding.

    Does anyone on the forum have practical workflow experience to make this work correctly I wonder?

    thanks

    it is simple

    1. forget about source aspect and what adobe claims

    2. use the calculator

    3. if you want your flv to be 480 wide and you want it to be 16:9, divide 480 by 1.7777777

    4. you should get 270

    5. set the width to 480 and the height to 270 in Flah8 and it will be perfect

    If you have Procoder3, you can export to flv direct from Edius timeline, however, at this stage I am unable to achieve decent quality, I will need further testing to see if I am doing something wrong

      Hi Anton,

      Yes this is exactly what I've been doing so far, but I've encountered some Flash players and source material that appears able to detect different aspect ratios - but I just can't get it to work, so maybe it doesn't - or my software mix can't get it together.

      I guess I'll stick to the math method which sure works fine.

        the whole world is still learning about 16:9

        come to Sydney and visit any club, you will see 4:3 content stretched to 16:9 display, and the Australian public thinks it looks great, woooooooooo

          yeah, I know what you mean, every time I see a large format flat screen or projected image, and also demo units in stores, they all show people with stretched heads! I guess most people view these things with their eyes firmly closed.
