There is a function where selecting: "Strip > Set Render Size" automatically populates the correct resolution. It would sure be great to have "Set Render Size" also automatically select the "correct" preset too so that the aspect ratio is made accurate to the source.

How do I set the correct Aspect Ratio?

For what I think you're trying to do, you shouldn't need to know how to work out aspect ratios.
If this is the screenshot you are talking about

I thought I had the correct aspect ratio settings set in Blender (720x480).

Resolution ≠ Aspect Ratio (Related viewing) It's probably best to use the presets. TV NTSC 16:9 in your case.

@Greg (bvip7) Blender does not set automatically these numbers, will have to calculate yourself. Aspect X 1.185 in your example (853/720= 1.185).
Or can use the 'Display Geometry' resolution with some minor detail loss.

Here's the "actual bug" recreated with a different DVD than I originally tried.

But why don't you just set the correct aspect ratio so that the footage becomes un-stretched?

I am setting the output res to what the numbers say. That is, VLC codec reports 720x480, Blender says 720x480, it was converted at strict 720x480.

I may not be describing things with the accurate terminology.

Blender is the most talked about choice for video editing? Really? Not in any editing suite or production company or film school I have ever seen. But ok.
Anyway, even in many commercial pro apps you have to manually stretch anamorphic video last time I checked.

It's just that anamorphic video is ubiquitous. If Blender doesn't support it, it seems to me that it would have near zero usefulness for editing videos. Every single video I would edit is anamorphic. I don't understand how anamorphic is not a requirement for a modern day video editor. And blender is the most talked about choice for video editing. So I'm surprised by this.

I just don't understand why anyone would want distorted video.

Are you referring to non-square pixels? If so, these are set here, in the Aspect X/Y section:


Don't think this is really a bug.
