I am trying to publish a movie that;s a combination of videos where some were filmed horizontally and some vertically. When I'm editing the footage it all looks perfect in the preview but after I publish it the Horizontal video shrinks so that the width matches the width of the vertical video. I tried playing with some setting but the most i can do is have the Horizontal video full size but then the vertical video gets zoomed in really close so that the width matches the width of the horizontal video. I would like the Horizontal videos to be full size and the Vertical videos to be "full size" so that the height matches the height of the horizontal videos. I understand that there will be black bars on the sides of the vertical videos, and thats fine, thats how it shows up in the preview, it just dosnt publish that way. Can I get some help?
Hello. I recorded footage that was supposed to be 4:3 but accidentally became a 16:9 video. Now I want to fix this by using VideoPad to export the video to 4:3. The problem is, that VideoPad adds black bars to the top and bottom of the video. I assume that VideoPad does this so I maintain the aspect ratio. But I do not want to maintain the aspect ratio, I want to change it. (to 4:3) Cropping the image is no option, as important parts would be lost. To make it more clear with an example: 1. This would be the the original video file. It should be 4:3 (perfect squares) but is 16:9 (stretched squares) instead: 2. This is the video that I want VideoPad to export. The aspect ratio changed to 4:3 to remove the stretching and to get the perfect squares: 3. But this is the video that I actually get from video pad. Same unwanted aspect ratio, but with black bars added: What I do: I click on export, I manually insert the exact 4:3 resolution that I want. Then I get to choose: "Crop Edges" "Resize to Fit" "Cancel" I chose "Resize to Fit". Crop is no valid option. I get the same stretched visuals from the picture at 1., but with parts of the image missing on the left and the right: So please tell me that there is a way to actually change the aspect ratio of videos with your software. (And not just the resolution of the file, while the video stays the same, with black bars top+bottom or information missing left+right.) Re-recording the footage is not possible, and I don't think that I'm asking for sorcery.
Hello, As far as I can see, there ist still no possibility to export 16:9 videos as anamorphic mpegs, which would be vital for DVD authoring of widescreen videos. Anamorphic export should be possible following this article: http://www.nch.com.au/kb/10231.html. Maybe the anamorphic formats are available when exporting directly to DVD but since Videopad has no serious authoring capabilities, this isn't really a way to go. DVD specifications allow the following formats: - 720x576 square pixels for "normal" 4:3 videos - 720x576 anamorphic for 16:9 videos In the second case the video is compressed horizontaly and is stretched by the playing device later. With videopad mpeg export the only way to get 16:9 videos exported is via "letterboxing", means: exporting at 720px width with black bars on top of and below the 16:9 video. That isn't a decent way to do it. Or did you ever watch a commercial DVD with a 16:9 movie with black bars on top and bottom? So I think it's about time that anamorphic output is added to Videpad export features.

I'm using the free v4.10 and I'm making a video consisting of photos. I want to use zoom on a picture that does not have an aspect ratio of 4:3 or 16:9, but when I try, and I click on "None" for "Force aspect ratio:", it stretches the picture to fit one of the two ratios. The picture I'm using is in a portrait orientation and I want to zoom/pan from left to right while the whole picture from top to bottom is in the shot. I realize that the video will be narrow and will have thick black bars on both sides, but that's what I'm going for. Is there a way to zoom on a picture that's not 4:3 or 16:9 without distortion? I was able to do this with the older VideoPad v2.41. Thanks for any help.
