Voukoder for AE seems not tagging aspect ratio and color metadata

  • I was using Voukoder to output AE treated PAL DV avis to ProRes MOV.

    The input files are either PAL 4:3 720x576 or PAL 16:9 720x576.

    Normally AE does tag its output files correctly, however when using Voukoder 8 (or earlier) it does neither tag the pixel aspect ratio nor any color metadata (color primaries / transfer functions / matrix coefficients).


    You can see this with AMCDX Videopatcher where you can add those meta data afterwards.

  • In case of ffmpeg all what it needs is: -aspect 16:9/4:3 command, so this should translate to Libav as well.

  • Vouk

    Added the Label In Progress
  • Vouk

    Removed the Label Adobe After Effects
  • I can confirm both.


    I didn't find a way to get the aspect ration information in IOOutSuite4. So it's hardcoded to 1:1 currently.


    As AE works in RGBA only I guess it would be:

    • Range: full
    • Matrix: rgb
    • Primaries: (Unset ?)
    • Transfer: (Unset ?)

    Do you need a custom encoder solution / plugin? Contact me.
