Recently another forum member discovered how to make custom project settings:
My goal is to render output that is as much as possible in the same format as the video files I am putting in. The video I'm putting in comes from my Sony HDD camera, and what I know about their format is this:
So I created a project configuration that looks like this:
I then created these custom rendering settings in the "export timeline" interface:
format=mpeg video_rc_min_rate=0 video_bit_rate=12000000 audio_bit_rate=384000 frequency=48000 size=720x480 progressive=1
However, when I render, it comes out as 25 frames per second, and, more importantly, the image is compressed horizontally, with black space on the left and right.
When I play it in Movie Player, it displays it at 640x480 for some reason, although I think it's actually 720x480, but the pixel aspect ratio on the rendering might be wrong (should be 1, might be .9).
Bottom line, the frame size is not under control at all, and I'm getting bad results.
Does any of the info I've described above indicate where I'm losing control of how this thing renders?
Thank you for any advice.
