I'm making an animated movie with a screen size of 960 x 540, and I'm trying to get it to properly import into VisionLab Studio. When I use the "New project - select movie" function, I import my clip in and this window shows up: Template: Custom | Width: 960 | Height: 540 | Framerate: 24.00 | Aspect ratio: Square | Scan method: Progressive | Sampling: 4:4:4. I've tried changing "Aspect ratio" to all of the options (Square, D1/DV PAL (1.07), D1/DV PAL Widescreen (1.42), D1/DV NTSC (0.9), D1/DV NTSC Widescreen (1.2), and HDV 1080 (1.3333)), but even with the letterbox effect, it still shows up as just a stretched full screen. No matter what I try to do, the exported clip is always 720 x 480. What can I do to set the actual screen size of the exported video and not just the picture size?

Oh, I got it! I just had to switch to Quicktime Animation Alpha, partially render that, and then switch back to AVI and the the screen size will be whatever I set it to.
