Producing videos in PDR that have a non-16:9 aspect ratio has been recently discussed here & here... and lots of times prior to that.
I've come to the (maybe too simplistic) conclusion that it can't be done in PDR. Dozens of customised profiles later, all I've managed to create are videos with various "cinema" aspect ratios stuck in a 16:9 frame.
When PepsiMan posted a different approach, I thought "AHA! This will do it." Following step-by-step to make sure I wasn't missing a thing, I put both PepsiMan's methods to the test. All I got was a distorted (stretched) image. Either I've messed up or it doesn't work.
I could have got this result much more simply!
Using a 21:9 screen capture posted recently, I tried to produce to 3440x1440 after modifying Profile.ini. Yep - MediaInfo says it's 3440x1440, but it also says it's 16:9. When I play it back, it just looks like a 21:9 video in a 16:9 frame (black bars top & bottom). So - the actual image area might be 21:9 but the video is not.
Help - Tony
