[tig] Analog to digital: Borders?
Sat Mar 27 20:36:33 GMT 2004
When you pass through a computer you're effectively using pixels that have
a (pixel) aspect ratio of 1:1
In digital video pixel aspect ratio is slightly less than 1,1
I'm not sure i understood your question entirely, but my guess is depending
on how your pc hardware deals with the capture, you may not be taking the
pixel aspect ratio into account. If you stay in video (as a transfer
medium) you don't have that problem.
Hope this helps
