• If the Photoshop file is less than full frame (titles, icons), or larger than full frame (an image you want to "pan & zoom" around in) the square-to-non-square-pixel-ratio may not be as obvious. In this event, in the Combustion Footage Controls choose From File in the Pixel Aspect Ratio drop-down.
• If a file looks squashed or too wide in an NTSC Combustion composite and it's origin can't be determined, try scaling the Layer down 90% on the Y axis, if that fixes it, it was created with square pixels, most likely in Photoshop. Remember to enable Window>Use Aspect Ratio to display the proper aspect ratio in the viewport.
