Handbrake reducing storage & size of video

Post by Lincon » Tue May 14, 2019 5:51 pm

Description of problem or question

I exported a ProRes file from Premiere Pro. The resolution size of the video is 1280 x 720.

When I open handbrake and select the video file as the source, I then select General -> Fast 720p30.
On the Picture tab, the Storage Size shows 706 x 604. I've tried all sorts of things to change it manually - changing the Anamorphic value and the Modulus value, change the Display Size, and it continues to change itself back to 706 x 604.

I've been using Handbrake for years and I've never had this problem. I assume it has something to do with how the source file is created, but I don't know how to solve it.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable)

I've tried it on two different machines and still have the same trouble.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0)

version 1.0.7

Operating system and xvideos.onl/ xnxx.onl/ chaturbate.onl/ version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.3 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update)

On one machine, the op systems is OS X El Capitan, v. 10.11.6

On the other machine, the op system is macOS Sierra, v. 10.12.3

Error message text or screenshot (If Applicable)

Upgrade to the latest release, 1.0.7 is not supported.

Code: Select all

[08:39:07] scan: 10 previews, 1280x720, 29.970 fps, autocrop = 116/0/286/288, aspect 16:9, PAR 1:1
HB found black bars on 3 sides of the image throughout the video, and by default crops them off. If it's wrong, or you want to keep them, set cropping to 0 on all sides in the picture tab.
