Widescreen MOD file does not get imported correctly

While importing widescreen MOD files in Adobe Premiere Elements, the aspect ratio changes from widescreen (16:9) to standard (4:3).


To resolve this issue, change the Pixel Aspect Ratio of the file by using the Interpret Footage feature.

  1. Import the widescreen file into the project.

  2. Right click the file in Project Assets panel and select Interpret Footage.

  3. In the Pixel Aspect Ratio setting, choose one of the following from the Conform to drop down:

    • D1/DV Widescreen 16:9 (1.2121) for NTSC project preset
    • D1/DV Widescreen 16:9 (1.4587) for PAL project preset
    Pixel Aspect Ratio
