Automatic aspect ratio

Post by zignorp »

Hello,
I have keep aspect ratio selected in the picture settings, but this is what does:

Source: 720x480
Output: 624x480

This is what happened on my first pass of using mediaFork, without adjusting any settings. (I did doublecheck the keep aspect ratio setting)

Can anyone tell me why it's going to 624 wide?

Thanks!

My guess is you are cropping some pixels off. Uncheck auto-crop. The auto-scale in MediaFork will drop your width to 624 if you (or it) crop out to many pixels. This will sometimes result in a slightly messed up aspect ratio. I always custom crop my 640 x 480 material and sometimes leave a little bit of the black bars to prevent the width from dropping to 624. See this post.
