I have downloaded several particle rooom effects (white dove) that state that they are a 4:3 aspect ratio, but when I try to import them into PD9, I get a message that their aspect ratio is 16:9 and that they are unuseable unless I change my project aspect ratio. The project is showing a 4:3 aspect ratio both at the top of the PD9 screen and under the Edit menu. I am a newbie so any help would be appreciated. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

That sounds odd, Phil -

1. Could you post the link to one of the effects that has given you this problem? Other members could test it on their PC/PD.

2. Here's a link showing how to use 4:3 effects in a 16:9 project & vice versa. It might help you work around the issue.

Tony:

Thanks for your prompt reply. One of the three that I tried was http://www.directorzone.cyberlink.com/detail/21510 . There is another dove (I searched for "Effect" = "dove") also on page 3 and both were labelled as 4:3. I then went to page 4 and found a moving dove, also listed as 4:3, but despite the fact that my project was 4:3, the PD9 told me that each of the templates was 16:9 and couldn't be used unless I changed my project aspect ratio.

I am a newbie so there might be something obvious that I am missing. Thanks again. Have a great day.
