    Handbrake is suddenly, out of the blue, ********** up my aspect ratio.

    My movies are at 1920x1080, and usually Handbrake outputs to mp4 compressed just fine.

    Suddenly, Handbrake is modifying aspect ratio without my input. When I try to go into picture settings, no amount of tweaking will get me the 1920x1080 aspect ratio.
    When I input 1920, the closest I've got is 1280 not 1080.
    No matter how much I try to convert a 781Meg movie into a compressed mp4 like I usually do, it will always mess up the aspect ratio, cropping part of the video.
    Take a look at the screenshot attached

    It really makes me mad when a program suddenly takes a mind of its own without user input & F***s up everything.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Handbrake crops your videos because you have automatic cropping on. You should be good to go after you go to Picture Settings, change Cropping from automatic to custom and change all the numbers you see below the cropping setting to 0.
