    Converting QuickTime Ref to other format gets cropped in Super(c)

    I use AMComposer 5 and i export a QuickTime reference to be able to convert to the format i want using Super(c) conversor.

    My video is PAL (25fps 768 x 576 with square pixels, 16:9).

    I export it and it works perfectly as a QTRef.  But after applying any kind of codec in Super, it gets cropped on the right side so it becomes a 4:3.  If you tell it to be 16:9, it expands it to fill that part.

    I tried exporting other formats, but i get several errors exporting. My main problem is to be able to get a HQ video but there is no mp4 , H.264/AVC, which is quite good.

     

    So my question is:  

    Do you know any fix ?

    Is there another way to use a QuickTime Ref. video in another software to convert it?. What do you normally do?

     

     

    It´s a 20 min shortfilm, and i just want a good quality video.   A basic Quicktime high quality gives me a 2.5 Gb video...

    To put it delicately, Super is a computer-infesting, malware-laden piece of crap.

    Use Sorenson Squeeze that comes with Avid for exactly the purpose you describe.

    Sorry to be picky but your description doesn't make sense.

    768x576 square pixels is a 4:3 ratio

     

    If you just want a good quality small file you could export H264 straight from MC. You should be able to get under 200MB for a decent looking file at SD resolution.

    First of al, your format does not conform to PAL. PAL format is 720 x 576 with non-square pixels.

    I know it´s a piece of malware but it is the only software that allowed me to convert to many formats in a faster and easier way. All together. Failing a lot, and a very very bad GUI, but...  i know what you mean. you are right. But i will use it until i find a equally capable and easy oponent.

    Yes indeed. I meant that.

     

    But if you tell it to show non-square pixels to square -> it turns to 16:9, which is the way it was recorded.

     

    Ill try that Sorenson Squeeze. (Never heard of it, though).

     

    But apart from that, do you know any piece of sofware that could replace Super and do all of those things not using a command line?

    How can I put this tactfully?

    If you bought any version MC you would also have Squeeze.  If you didn't buy MC I think it's a bit rich to expect users here who did to help you.

    I was just thinking of putting a similar tactful question, John
