Why resolution will change in After Effect?

Would you please help me? I have problem with imported files in After Effect, the file resolution in After Effect is different from source file.
I am editing an NTSC video file in Edius, the resolution is 720x480-widescreen16:9 and aspect ratio is 1:2, I exported part of clip with exactly same feature but when I imported video in After Effect, the resolution and Aspect ratio changed, right now the resolution in After Effect is 856x480 and aspect ratio is 1:00, I dont know why it changed.
The video format I chose in Edius was Canopus DV AVI, could it be the reason? Should I use another format?
Can anybody help me? What is the problem? How can I solve it?
I appreciate any help in advance.

You should separate fields if the video is interlaced. You may either work in a square pixel comp or a rectangular pixel comp. AE will handle all PAR correction internally without problems as long as the footage is properly interpreted.
For render, if you are going back to canopus for editing you should render with the same frame size and specs as the footage. You may choose to interlace the output if you desire. I presonally haven't rendered anything as interlaced for years. I used to shoot film and I hate the look, but it's a matter of choice.
I'm not sure what you're referring to as the interlacing problem. This is the first that I've heard of that. If you mean that the footage looks interlaced in AE then that's probably the case. If you separate fields properly then there should be no interlacing problem. Interlacing has nothing to do with pixel aspect ratio.
Interlacing does have something to do with comp size if your footage is a different size vertically. For example, if you put NTSC DV footage which contains 480 scan lines (480 pixels high) in a D1 comp 486 scan lines (486 pixels high) and you don't separate fields in that footage, then you render introducing fields in the proper order for your D1 capture solution, the field order in the original footage will be reversed. The solution there is to move the footage down 1 pixel. This is kind of a mute point anyway because if you're moving video around in the frame, scaling it, or rotating it in any way you should be separating fields on all interlaced footage. There's no exception to that rule.

  • Why i can download adobe after effects?

    hello everybody.... this is my question... why i can download adobe after effects? when i download it, the download assistant say that error...

    If you are having problems with the Adobe Download Assistant contacting the internet it may be due to a software firewall you have in place.  I would check your software firewall setting to make sure it is allowing the Adobe Download Assistant to contact the internet.
    Beyond that you may also want to review Troubleshoot Adobe Download Assistant.

  • Script changes in After Effects CC

    Hey guys, does anyone know ahout the script changes in the next version of After Effects?
    Any details?

    I can only give you some new additions:
    app.activeViewer.views[0].options.fastPreview == FastPreviewType.FP_ADAPTIVE_RESOLUTION
    app.activeViewer.views[0].options.fastPreview == FastPreviewType.FP_DRAFT
    app.activeViewer.views[0].options.fastPreview == FastPreviewType.FP_FAST_DRAFT
    app.activeViewer.views[0].options.fastPreview == FastPreviewType.FP_OFF
    app.activeViewer.views[0].options.fastPreview == FastPreviewType.FP_WIREFRAME
    app.language == Language.CHINESE
    app.language == Language.KOREAN
    app.project.activeItem.layer("Layer Name").samplingQuality == LayerSamplingQuality.BICUBIC
    app.project.activeItem.layer("Layer Name").samplingQuality == LayerSamplingQuality.BILINEAR
    app.project.activeItem.layer("Text 1").sourceText.value.justification == ParagraphJustification.MULTIPLE_JUSTIFICATIONS
    Since preferences are all in different text files now:
    app.preferences.getPrefAsLong("Auto Save", "Auto Save Max Project Vers", PREFType.PREF_Type_MACHINE_INDEPENDENT)
    You get the point...
    ...and using a savePref put the value in the 3rd parameter as usual:
    app.preferences.savePrefAsLong("Clone Settings - General", "Active Preset", 1, PREFType.PREF_Type_MACHINE_SPECIFIC_PAINT)
    app.preferences.getPrefAsBool("Text and Fonts", "Smart Quotes", PREFType.PREF_Type_MACHINE_SPECIFIC_TEXT)
    Hopefully nobody has been scripting using enum numeric values because many have changed (ie. BlendingMode.ADD in CS6 was 4420 and in CC it is 4620).

  • CC will not allow After Effects CS6 to Update

    I am a frequent After Effects CS6 user; not so long ago I started a subsciption with Adobe Creative Cloud and I've had nothing but issues with it.
    The CC desktop would crash my whole system on launch, so I cancelled my subsciption and uninstalled anything related to CC cause I saw no real benefit.
    But the CC apps remained on the system no matter what I tried to remove them.
    Now my Premiere Pro CS6 is unable to open, and After Effects CS6 is unable to update.

    I used that link already. I believe my old cc subscription is blocking. It states 'updates have been suppressed by the administrator'. After effects crashing after ram previewing. CC was removed after it crashed my desktop a few months ago. I have CS5 & cs6 which I paid for installed but I cant get into premiere pro because cc hijacks it. Cc was removed uninstalled because My system desktop wouldnt load so I discontinued my subscriptupm but it has interferred with my ability to use tge CS6 programs!
    I have not been able to get any support and now I cant even edit a 2 minute short film which is due tomorrow.

  • Why resolution is so small after OS X Mavericks was installed?

    After installing OS X Mavericks webpages (including Apple's) are very small and distorted (very narrow and long)  Have tried in preferences and could not find anything to set up resolutions, I tried in Google Chrome, could not find anything either.  Anyone knows how to fix this?

    Everything is smaller.  I found someone else's post and changed resolution. I removed the "Best for Display" and selected 1600 x 1000, is the closest, but does not look as it was before, trying the next one is just too big.  I do games and jigzaw puzzles online and now I have to scroll up or down to center the image in the window, I didn't used to do that. 
    Thanks for checking my post.

  • Why the cursor changes only after moving the mouse?

    I have used the setCursor() on a JInternalFrame to change the image of the cursor. I change the cursor to Cursor.WAIT_CURSOR and back to Cursor.DEFAULT_CURSOR in a new thread. Then the only way for the cursor to change from WAIT to DEFAULT is to move the mouse, otherwise it will remain in WAIT status. What's going wrong?

    I am using version 1.1.2 in JBuilder1. I have an extended Dialog as an interface to change the Oracle Password. When the OK button is selected to complete the process of accessing the DB to make the change, I change cursor to the wait cursor before the DB is accessed. I have to move the mouse to trigger the cursor change to wait. I would think there would be an efficient way to do this. I would also appreciat some help. I'm not sure if this is a problem in later versions.

  • Why I can't download After Effect

    When I try to download in creative cloud I was searching for it but I can't find it. I am a 32 bit PC guy.

    CC and CC14 are 64 bit applications. You cannot use them on a 32 bit machine. That's why you can't find them. It is always important to check the system requirements before purchasing software. They are not hard to find:

    While use command sudo nvram boot-args=”arch=x86_64″, and reboot, I found 64 bit support YES in about, but sometimes later, check about again, 64 bit support is NO, I do nothing, just play music in iTunes.

    Yes, we need to export the pst file first. If you do not clear how to manage .pst file, please read the following article before remove Office.
    Then, we could completely remove Office 64bit, restart the Computer and install 32 bit version of Office.
