Okay, bear with me as this question will probably expose my ignorance about
video resolution and aspect ratios. If anyone can recommend a good on-line
tutorial that will demystify all of this, I'd really appreciate.
I'm working with source video that's 480 X 480 with a 1.33 pixel ratio. The
image is compressed horizontally, making it look squashed. I want to
extract a scene and output it in Adobe Premiere Pro to a standard format,
say 720 X 480 and make it look normal. What would be the best way to work
with this footage? What project settings do I use (matching source or
output)? Do I "unsquash" the source footage by applying video effects, or
by outputting to a different resolution, aspect/pixel ratio? Etc...
Yes, I know, I'm clueless about this. Ususally I work with footage I've
shot myself, and it's all standard.
Thanks for patiently answering my question.
