Hello community,

I use Aperture 3 for stills and videos and use the 'ad hoc diashow' option very often (mark some photos and videos and choose diashow).

Now I bought a new photo camera that supports HD video format 1440x1080.

Here is the problem: If I choose the diashow option with this video format, the presentation is compressed to a 4:3 format. That happens only in the diashow presentation. Watching the video by doubleclick from the browser everything looks fine (16x9 format).

Is this a bug ???

    this is a long time ago question with no answer, but maybe someone has a solution now.

    I'm having the same problem.


    If I use mp4 format in my Sony Alpha-65 instead of AVCHD, it creates mp4 videos with 1440*1080 pixel and 16:9 aspect ratio, with 25 fps, AVC (Main@L4.0).


    These are 16:9 videos and displayed with 1920*1080 pixel in all applications including Quicktime, Aperture, etc.


    Just if I use this video in a diashow in Aperture it is compressed and uses a 1440*1080 format with something like a 4:3 aspect ratio..

    As this only appears in Aperture diashows, it seams to be a problem there.


    Any idea?
