    Question regarding Arri 2K 4:3 Anamorphic workflow to Avid 8.5.1?!?!

    Cheers fellow Aviders!. .. .I have this issue that I need to fix immediately, I’m not sure if it’s because I chose the wrong Project format, or transcoded the AMA links wrong.

    I’m working as a DIT/AE on a indie low budget feature.. . and we’re shooting with Arri 2K 4:3 2048x1536. .. Expected aspect ratio, 2.39.1

    I created a 2K 2048x1536 4:3 23.976 project in Avid 8, than did the frame flex on the linked Arri ProRes AMAs, set the image aspect ratio to 2.39.1. . Then I transcoded in Avid’s background and then made Stills from those transcodes for Production.

    but in Avid when I hit the full frame playback option, the frame leaves black bars on the sides and the DP of the project said the Stills came out a bit squeezed looking.

    My questions are, what do I to fix this issue immediately?!. . Where did I go wrong?. .. .I just wanna make sure I setup the right format settings for the project, so the Editor after me isn’t working with different aspect ratios.

    This is only the 2nd day on this Production and I wanna make sure to get a fast & smooth workflow going, and I’d really like to do all my work in Avid and not use a 3rd part software.

    Thank you all for reading my message, have a great day!

    I think you might be confusing screen aspect ratio with the pixel ratio needed to display the image correctly.

    See if this helps:
