Hi all:
I've imported a couple of .vob files into PD 19 and can't get the aspect ratio right. Have tried all the choices up in the menu but the video still comes up the PD monitor all out of size.
I even went so far as to change the file format from VOB to mp4 but the problem persists.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for replies

You don't mention what the aspect ratio is and what PD is doing. You might try to set project aspect ratio to what it should be, drop clip in timeline, right click on clip and use the "Set Clip Attributes" > "Set Aspect Ratio..." to define what you think the clip is.

Thanks for the reply.
I may not have phrased the question the right way. Let me do it again and keep it simple.
When the vido is on the Timeline and in the PD monitor, it comes up stretched out. As mentioned, I've tried all the aspect ratios in the program and while they do change the aspect ratio, none of them render the video the right size. The video in the monitor is always too large. Maybe all I need to do is down size it, but I don't know how. Is there some way to "free form" re-size?

I hope this clarifies. I'm not an old hand at PD, but I have done a bunch of videos all with good results, but have never had this problem before.

VOB files are from DVD videos and are usually 4:3 ratio, some are 16:9. Carl312: Windows 10 64-bit 8 GB RAM,AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz,ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB,240GB SSD,two 1TB HDs.

Correct, Carl. It is also possible that the imported vob 4:3 clip was stretched previously to 16:9 or with something like clpv was used on the clip to give oblong sides. The OP did not follow up. PiP Designer tool with maintain aspect ratio unchecked would give the freedom to do whatever is necessary.
