The lab products currently doesn't add a small "tag" to your footage to make it display as 16:9 in your editing app...but you can change this yourself by editing the pixel aspect ratio to widescreen, and that should work.

Hmm, that depends on what editing application you are using. But in most programs, you go into the properties of your clip and change the pixel ratio. What application are you using?

Check the manual for "Aspect Ratio" or "Pixel Aspect Ratio".

Make sure your import settings are correct. I think by default they might well be set to 4:3.

Check you export and import settings in the programs you use and make sure they use the correct pixel aspect ratio. smile

Inside Premiere, right-click on your imported video file and choose 'Interpret Footage'.

Then change the pixel aspect ratio to either PAL DV Widescreen or NTSC DV Widescreen, depending on whether you have PAL or NTSC footage.

I have iMovie. When I import widescreen footage, it doesn't show it as widescreen, just stretched out. I can't find anything about pixel aspect ratios.

Here is a plugin for iMovie to adjust aspect ratios. It costs $2.50, and I have never used it, so I can't say how good it is.

o i am sorry i keep writing alot in dvxuser so i asumed u had a dvx100 cam. What cam do u have. Maybe ur cam shoots native. The dvx doesint so u need to use a squeeze methoth thats on it or do it in post but squeeze is highly recomended if u have a dvx100 or higher. Also id u have a dvx100 or higher u can use a software called photozoom for a good 16x9 conversion still not as effective as a animorphic but realy close. Let me know what cam u have bro.
