Wanted to match video segment to 1168 Pixels x 656 Pixels, 16/10...How?

How can you set "pixel" video size? Want to patch a file but VRD wants to recode so I need to change the
720p, 16/9 patch piece to match the original.

Recorded several years ago so don't know how I ended up with these odd ball specs.
I thought of Crop/Resize but it seems to give NO info on what it is doing to the file as to pixels x pixels.

Thanks,

We don't allow arbitrary aspects like that sorry. We support the standard ones in the MPEG-2 spec and "match resolution". Unfortunately "match resolution" isn't 16/10 for that specific resolution so there is no way to get VRD to match that specific combination.

Was afraid of that.
Was trying to figure out how I got those specs and remembered I recorded the shows on a smaller monitor(16/10).
Can't get OBS to replicate the original file specs either on my new monitor.

Oh well. If the "rough starts" bother me too much I'll just have to redo the whole thing at 720p.

Thanks,

You might want to try recording to 1168 x 720 which 16:10 with the aspect ratio set to 1:1.

Curious as to where your original source file came from, 16:10 is unusual for anything other than a screen capture.

Yep, I finally remembered that I recorded the shows on a smaller old monitor(16/10) several years ago.

I was going over the files that I had and why my 720p files looked better and noticed that at the bottom of the old files there is what is probably a 1/10 black band with what would then be "16/9" video above it.

I can set VLC to open at the actual video size and that can reveal black "letter boxing" ect. that I never realized was there at all... Pillars I notice. :)

VLC plays the files with a black background so over all these years I never noticed the bottom black band till I was trying to patch the low quality "starts" of the files.
I'm now just redoing them all at 720p (less total work).

I so,so wish I could just buy them on dvd or any other physical format. Real time recording is awful.


thanks.

You can match display aspect and resolution, with or without anamorphic, with or without cropping, in Handbrake.
