    I have a film which I downloaded that seems to have originally been 4:3 ratio and seems to have now 16:9 ratio.

    So the images look squeezed between up and down, not between left and right as it should be if it was anamorphized.

    What aspect ratio should I use to get things back to normal?

    If you could post a screenshot of what you're talking about, a picture IS worth a thousand words ;-) also open it in PPro if you have this and use the Get Properties for feature and display those or maybe open it with ImTOO mpeg encoder..it also had a nice feature for displaying the video's true properites like exact framesize, aspect ratio, etc.

    I don't know how to post a picture here for you to see. But it looks as if a 4:3 frame had been crushed from above and below onto a 16:9 frame. Get it?

    I don't use Premiere or ImTOO, but on Gspot it shows it is a 640x368 (1.74:1) feature. What other info do you need?

    a 1.74:1 is a 16:9 enhanced ratio for Computer Screens(which have square pixels).
    Re-encode with the correct ratio of 1.77:1.

    Use AutoGK, GordenKnot, or CCE w avisyth. Set for DAR 16:9

    Best I can do without actually "seeing" the problem.
    Jam on.

    Thanks. I ended up using TMPGEnc 3.0 Xpress, which allowed me doing the correction.

    The exact ratio had to be determined by trial and error, finding the best natural proportions.
