Video output in After Effects with nonstandard aspect ratios

PostFri Sep 28, 2018 11:53 pm

I often work in After Effects in compositions with nonstandard dimensions and aspect ratios. I used to have an AJA card for video output that would scale any dimension comp to fit within my 1920x1080 broadcast monitor, letterboxed to maintain the proper aspect ratio. This was very helpful, especially when grading or working with clients. Now I've got a Blackmagic Decklink 4k Extreme 12G card, which, depending on my video output settings and comp size, will either send out a distorted 16:9 image to the monitor, or none at all. Is there any way to get this to work like the AJA card did?

Thanks,
John

I'm in the exact same situation.
I think that's a major issue, and prevent me to use AE with my Decklink card.
Did you find a solution?

So does Blackmagic want to make it hard for its customers to use Adobe products or is it the other way around.

It would be a logical development for Adobe users to stop getting Blackmagic products.
