Black box

Recommended Posts

Hi all, would appreciate some help with the following. I've produced an AV which I have published to MP4 for Vimeo upload. Once the videos uploaded it doesn't fill the screen but instead has a black box surrounding it. Full Screen doesn't do anything. On the Project Options, I have the aspect set to 3:2. Of course, if I play it on my PC just as an MP4 I can set the screen to Zoom to Fill but you can't do this with Vimeo and Youtube.

Hi Rob,

This from web information on YouTube :  Although I don't use Vimeo - I believe they are the same....

Thanks. I understand this but other videos (time lapse for example) that I have created outside of PTE don't have this issue. It's only videos I have created within PTE for some reason.

Hi Rob,

I'm a little confused. 1920 is only one part of what make an aspect ratio. What is the other? 1080p is 1920 x 1080 pixels as I'm sure you know. If you are creating the video at a 3:2 aspect ratio, is 1920 the long side and 1280 the short side?

Best regards,

Lin

Hi Lin, 

Thanks for taking the time to help me pout on this. The images are 1920x1280. I have also tested it by setting the project size to 16:9 and uploading onto Vimeo. Some of the images fill the screen  Those images without effects (zoom for example) have a thick black box surrounding them and those with zooming fill the screen. here's the link to the AV.  

3:2 aspect  

 

16:9.

Rob, if your images are 1920 x 1280, then the aspect ratio of the project needs to be 16:10 not 3:2

It looks to me that the show has been made at 3:2 aspect ratio with varying degrees of zoom size that will be restricted to the 3:2 format and play ok at 3:2. As soon as the aspect ratio in PTE is changed to 16:9, the images made for 3:2 are not going magically all fit the 16:9. That’s why some do and some don’t.

None of your images would be any problem in a 16:9 show and that is what needs to be done. Each image needs to be revisited and adjusted in the Object and Animation screen to fit the new format of 16:9.

in a world where practically every display is 16:9, it seems to me to be one time when it’s right to follow the crowd.
