How to change Webcam Aspect Ratio?

  • Updated 3 weeks ago
I have a HD (16x9) camera rigged up to Camatasia 2018 but I noticed that Camtasia is squeezing the output from my camera into what looks like a 4x3 aspect ratio so I look weird and there are two black bars down the side of the picture.

I can't seem to find anywhere to specify the dimensions/aspect ratio of the 'Recorded Inputs'.

I'm able to adjust my screencast dimensions but not the dimensions of the camera that is recording me during the screencast recording.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Gavin

What do you mean "Rigged up to?".  Are you trying to use the camera as a webcam?

Yes, the camera simply replaces my crappy webcam. I have it connected to the computer via a livestream capture device which is working. The only issue is the aspect ration. If I record in OBS there is not aspect ratio squeeze. It records at 16x9

This image was created for format settings.

However, it shows you how to get the other tab. "Device Properties"
You should be able to change the aspect ratio under it.
