    4:3 footage with 16:9 footage

    How can I get 4:3 footage into my 16:9 sequence without stretching it?

    Thanks,

    Dana

    Here's what I do:

    import / edit / use REFORMAT effect (adjust accordingly)

    You can also tag your clips in the bin, then they'll be treated correctly when you add them to your timeline. To do so, make sure you're in Text view, and that you're showing the Pixel Aspect Ratio, Image Aspect Ratio, and Reformat. Here you can tag your clips properly, and select in Reformat how Media Composer should treat it if and when you drop your clips in a timeline of a different aspect ratio. You can easily to it to one clip at the time, or select a bunch of them in the bin and change them all.
