    Is it possible to do a 2:1 ratio? My 360 camera outputs 2:1, and in order to upload to youtube correctly I need the video to remain 2:1.

    Hi Michael,


    In X9 and below, there are only the 4:3 & 16:9 selections as described. In X10 however, there is a new option labeled Source Frame Size. As long as the initial clip has a 2:1 ratio, it should work.
