I am facing the challenge how to get my storage size equal to my display size and both equalizing with the source video format. I checked the forum but so far couldn’t find an answer.
I got video files (digitized pretty old Hi 8 tapes).They are mpg format and have an aspect ratio 720x576. And FPS 25. I want to convert them into mp4 format with the same aspect ratio.
First I tried the preset of Fast 576p25.
Then my Summary tab showed a storage size of 708x574 and display size of 755x574. Assuming that storage size should be the same as the aspect ratio of the source I adjusted the storage size to 720x576 . However, the storage and display sizes on the summary didn’t change. Cropping and anamorphic settings were Automatic & Auto with this Preset.
As the chosen Preset didn’t give me the source aspect ratio (720x576) for both the storage and display size I tried some different Cropping & Anamorphic combinations to achieve this and make my own preset.
So for entering a storage size 720x576 I tried the following combinations with their results as shown on the Summary tab.
a).Cropping automatic and anamorphic automatic gave storage 708x574 & display 755x574;
b). Cropping automatic & anamorphic off gave storage 708x538 & display 708x538;
c). Cropping custom (4 x zero's) & anamorphic off gave storage 720x540 & display 720 x 540;
d). cropping custom (4x zero's) & anamorphic automatic gave storage 720x576 & display 768x576.
None of these combinations gave me the desired result of 720x576 for both storage and display size.
English is not my mother tongue so I might have misunderstood some esential things in the guidelines. Eg about cropping and anamorphic.
Please could someone give me some advice to get display size equal to storage size equal to source ratio?
Thanx in advance for any advice
