For PAL, the screen size is 720 x 576, when divided = 1.25.
For NTSC, the screen size is 720 x 480, when divided = 1.5.
So what I am saying is, the PAL and NTSC 4:3 is not really 4:3.
There is no 720 x 576 (or 480) standardized 4:3 setting in Jing. The two closest are 640 x 480 and 800 x 600. (The true 4:3 setting would be 720 x 540).
So if I am making a video project intended for PAL TV and I want to match the screen size, should I just set my capture area to 720 x 576? (Normally I hold down the Ctrl key to ensure I get the standardized 4:3 capture size).
To confuse matters even further PAL or NTSC Widescreen 16:9 has the same size as PAL or NTSC Standard 4:3! I am told that in widescreen, the pixels are rectangular instead of square.
Does it really matter? I have found that to get the best quality capture, it is best to match pixel for pixel.
