The Image menu is available to a limited range of formats, and those formats might use only a subset of the following options.
- Scale to Full HD button
Enable Scale to Full HD to have media with a 1280x1080 or 1440x1080 resolution appear in the Player at a standard 1920x1080 resolution. Disable Scale to Full HD to display the media at its native (1280x1080 or 1440x1080) resolution in the Player. Available to P2, XDCAM, and MXF.
- Include YUV Headroom
Enable to keep the YUV headroom information during clip import. Only applies to 10-bit YCbCr-material found in some mp4 and QuickTime files. Disabling this option for clips that use the headroom (usually clips from cameras) results in clips with clamped black and whites. Enabling this option for clips that do not use the headroom (usually clips from Final Cut Pro) results in an imported clip with lowered contrast. The headroom is discussed in more details in Inputting and Outputting with Headroom
NoteIf a clip imported with Include YUV Headroom enabled is wired to a system running pre-2011 SP3 software, the option is disregarded and the clip headroom is discarded. To avoid this, ensure that all systems are upgraded to at least the 2011 SP3 version of the software.
- Aspect Ratio box
Select the aspect ratio of the frames used to import the file and override the aspect ratio stored in the file as specified. You might need to change the aspect ratio as many applications erroneously write a pixel aspect ratio of 1 (a square pixel), even for formats that have non-square pixels (NTSC, PAL).
Viewing the clip in the Player with the specified aspect ratio requires that you enable the Use Ratio toggle in the View menu; the Preview panel in the Clip Library always displays the clip with the selected aspect ratio. Also note that the application internally uses a frame ratio, not a pixel ratio. To specify a pixel ratio, you must select either Square Pixels or Enter Pixel Aspect Ratio; Aspect Ratio from Resolution and Aspect Ratio from Header are interpreted as frame ratios.
- Aspect Ratio field
Set the ratio used to define the frame or pixel aspect. Affects the frame aspect if the Aspect Ratio box is set to Enter Frame Aspect Ratio. Affects the pixel aspect if it is set to Enter Pixel Aspect Ratio.
