Return tracks + aspect ratios

Hello! A couple of questions:

  • With a video+audio track, is it possible to apply send effects to apply to just the audio, without affecting the video with these (audio) effects? Unchecking “follow routings” doesn’t seem to do the trick.

  • Regarding scaling, it seems that both “stretch to fit” and “stretch to fill” stretch / widen the aspect ratio of my original SD (720 × 486) clips. Is there possibly a workaround for this?

Thank you for any help!

Hey Evan,

  • Follow routings currently only applies to channel routings (Audio From/To). What you could do is place a Properties device on the Return channel and mute video.
  • Have you tried “Scale to fit”? :smiley: That one shouldn’t stretch the anything.

Let me know if that works for you.

Great tip on muting the video on the return channel, thanks.

And sorry, I meant to type “scale to fit” and “scale to fill.” :joy: Both still seem to be stretching the video…

Hehe, it’s what I assumed but I had to be sure :slight_smile: That’s interesting though! Could you send over the videos that you’re having this problem with to
