Good morning all,

I have a doubt, and I am a little lost, concerning the video format of the presets that I create.
For the resolution it's good, but which ones in the list are in 4/3 or 16/9? I sometimes have problems with distorted video images on the screens on which I project.
Also, what fps used to project with an LCD TV screen or on a video projector? (I am in France)

Thank you to everyone who can help me a little, I don't know where to find information to move forward.

Just some thoughts:

- "Framerate should match the frame rate of the Video Camera sources where possible." (https://www.vmix.com/help23/index.htm?Display.html)

- I'm not sure how the distortion you mentioned shows up (screenshot available?). Does it happen on camera and/or video file inputs? Maybe it is related to https://www.vmix.com/hel...ndex.htm?Interlaced.html ?

- I think the SD presets are usually 4:3. You can check it on the Output Aspect Ratio in Settings ("Normal", https://www.vmix.com/hel.../index.htm?Display.html)

- If you want to combine 4:3 output (eg. Fullscreen output on projector) AND 16:9 output (eg. Stream), I think you have to decide for one route and adjust accordingly.

If you are in France then you shold use PAL (Secam is also broadcast on some old TV's possibly still) not NTSC PAL 25 fps NTSC 30 frames.
So assuming your projector or TV are set correctly for France then that shuld be the best to use and in 16;9 not 4;3
Your cameras and project also need to be set up the same to get best results.
Hope that helps
