Parameters Common to All Generators
All generators have a reset button and Width, Height, and Pixel Aspect Ratio controls,
located in the Generator Inspector. The controls specific to each type of generator are
discussed later in this chapter.
• Reset: A button you can click to reset the generator to its default settings.
• Width: A slider that sets the width of the generator, in pixels. Values range from 1 to
the width of your project.
• Height: A slider that sets the height of the generator, in pixels. Values range from 1 to
the height of your project.
• Pixel Aspect Ratio: A pop-up menu that sets the aspect ratio of the pixels drawn by the
generator. Values can be selected from the following menu options: Square, NTSC
D1/DV, NTSC D1/DV Anamorphic, PAL D1/DV, PAL D1/DV Anamorphic, Anamorphic
2:1, D4/D16, D4/D16 Anamorphic, HD (960 x 720, 1440 x 1080), HD (1280 x 1080), or
Custom. When a value other than Custom is selected, the Pixel Aspect Ratio of that
selection appears in a value field next to the pop-up menu. Enter values from 0 to
10000 in the value field. If the value does not correspond to a preset value (for example,
2 for Anamorphic 2:1), Custom appears in the pop-up menu.
