Which flag for a cut video stream?

Post by Amour » Fri May 12, 2006 8:41 am

Hello,

Recently, I found a file with the video cut. There is no black bar, just the top and bottom of the video were slightly cut, so the video is smaller and the aspect ratio is now 3:2 instead of 4:3.

1) Is it Aspect Ratio 4:3 or Other? (Originally it was 4:3, but because of the cut, it is now 3:2)
2) Is it Anamorphic? (I don't think so, the picture isn't streched, just cut)
3) Is it wrong aspect ratio? (I don't think so, the aspect ratio is correct, the video is just cut top and bottom, so it becomes 3:2)

Thanks

This would be 3:2 (Other) I believe.

2) Is it Anamorphic? (I don't think so, the picture isn't streched, just cut)

No, Anamorphic is when your mediaplayer need to scale the picture to correct aspect.

3) Is it wrong aspect ratio? (I don't think so, the aspect ratio is correct, the video is just cut top and bottom, so it becomes 3:2)

No, the aspact ratio is wrong in case of an anamorphic but the information of the correct aspect is not given in the file.
