We're shooting footage with the HV20 for training videos and webmercials which will al be online. So, the output format will be square pixels. I'm shooting in the HDV 24p mode and the way I'm doing it is..
1. Capture with premiere
2. Import the mpeg into after effects and do my compositing
3. Export at a 16x9 format.
That seems to work fine except that after effects reads the file as 1440x1080 and without turning on the pixel aspect ratio correction option in the preview window, it's stretched height wise. I have to set up an output module to resize the video to a 16x9 format. As I said, that is working fine but I didn't know if any of you have a smoother workflow to export from premiere to a square pixel format without having it resize the video down to 720x480 (I think that's the correct dimensions). I know that 720x480 should be fine, but some of what we're doing involves keying which I do in AE, so I'd like to have the larger resolution file to have more edge information and get cleaner keys. Does it sound like I'm making things too difficult or is there an easier, more straightforward way? Thanks.
