QuickTime INFO

I'm so used to pressing Command-I and reading all about a movie in QuickTime, it came as a surprise when I found a piece missing. QuickTime somehow "knows" the difference between a 16x9 show and a 4x3 show and whatever that difference is, it doesn't appear as a setting in the INFO panel.

"Well, you just look at it."

If I could do that, I wouldn't be posting. We have QuickTimes that appear 4x3 in the QuickTime Viewer, but 16x9 in other applications such as Studio Pro, and then chameleon-like 4x3 again when we play the DVD back.

Other times we present a 16x9 movie in QuickTime Player and it has precisely the same specifications as the 4x3 movie that came before it.

It's a given that we have movies that look totally wrong, too tall, too short.

I want to see that flag. I want to be able to tell when I have a 4x3 show that will appear 16x9 under certain applications.

Quicktime X shows you in parenthesis that the file is anamorphic - as in this pic, where it tells me the dimensions, which are 720 x 576 and then (1024 x 576) which is the flag that this is anamorphic footage.

I need to go back and look at the clips. For some reason I'm thinkin' that didn't work out as neat and orderly as you would think.
