Aspect Ratio Confusion [Sony Movie Studio]
#1
Okay so this is really random. I hope I can explain it correctly.

I'm editing away on Movie Studio and all is well. I save a frame (to photoshop and replace) and place it back on the timeline. It's then that I notice the image doesn't allign with the footage it was taken from. The preview window for the edit is cropping the image for the video track, yet not for the image I added. Naturally they don't line up anymore. I'm trying to work out what has happened here.

Is there a setting on the preview window that I'm missing? While I'm dragging a clip and extending it, the ratio returns to normal. When I let go, the image is cropped again.

Fullsize image that appears when extending a video clip.

I expect that this is too vague to answer, but hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. I followed guides on here to prep this edit. It's correctly set-up as far as I can tell (Editing in 1280x720).

Do you have "Maintain aspect ratio" enabled on your edited image? I've found that option can incorrectly set the aspect ratio of media that has been manipulated (and it seems to be on by default for anything I add to my Timeline).

Thanks for the response. I double checked and this doesn't appear to be the issue. It's the video tracks themselves that are cropped, zoomed in for some reason. No pan/crop options used on them though.
