Lock Video Size When Exporting to DVD PAL

vbimport

#1

Hi,

I am using Adobe Premier and I would like to export my video (ie 400X400 pixels) to DVD PAL (720X576 pixels).

Now, I am setting my project to DV PAL (720 X 576) and in Video 1 I put my original video (400 X 400 pixels) and in Video 2 a black still Image (*.Jpg) with the standard PAL size which is 720X576 pixels to use it as a background filler for the “empty” areas of the video 1 which is smaller.

The problem is that I can not lock my original video dimensions to the center of the output video without Premier stretching it to the project’s defined size which is 720X576.

Is there any way to do this in Premier or in any other lightweight software ?

I used Discreet Combustion to do this before, but I have to render twice since I want also a MPEG export inside Premier.

Regards,

If I remember right. You have to start a new project and use the PAL option instead of the NTSC option.

I found the solution by writing the following AVISynth script. For anyone who need this here it is :

=========================================
MainClip="page1.avi"
MainClip=DirectShowSource(MainClip).AssumeFPS(25.000, true)
FC=Framecount (MainClip)
AR = Audiorate(MainClip)
AC=Audiochannels(MainClip)

Background=“BlackPAL.jpg” # Just a black filled Image with 720X576 pixels size. This is the PAL standard size

B=ImageSource(Background ).AssumeFPS(MainClip)
B_loop=B.Loop(FC,1,1)

Backgroundaudio=Tone(10.0, 440, AR , AC, “silence”, 1.0).Loop()
B_loop=Audiodubex(B_loop,Backgroundaudio)
B_loop=Audiodubex(B_loop,MainClip)

FinalMovie=Overlay(B_loop,MainClip,x=34,y=30, mode=“blend”,opacity=1.0).ConvertToYV12() # For VirtualDub or CCE
Finalmovie
