Newbie PDX10 16:9 Question...

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by jonathandowns, Mar 20, 2006.

  1. i've been reading and learning about the pdx10's widescreen...and if
    i'm correct, it retains it's resolution in 16:9 mode, instead of
    blowing up the image horizontally or chopping it vertically.

    so if this is true, what i'm wondering is this: could i shoot and edit
    in 16:9 mode, and then before output, use the "Aspect Ratio" slider in
    the "Distort" menu of the the "Motion" tab to shrink the video
    vertically (-33.3%) to correct the aspect ratio, and therefore
    shrinking the vertical pixels and creating a sharper-higher-quality
    image? does this make any sense?

    You might find this interesting.
    It is a comparison of the resolution of the 950 VS the PDX-10
    I did it some time ago when a similar question came up.
