Version 16 Pixel-Aspect-Ratio Drop-Down missing NTSC/PAL?

In Version 15 if you right click a video event on the timeline and go to Properties/Media and use the Pixel Aspect Ratio pull down there are 6 options including 2 for PAL and 2 for NTSC. In version 16 if you do the same procedure i'm only seeing 2 Square and HDV 1080. This is at least w/ a CineForm AVI loaded (see attached photos). I am able to manually set the pixel aspect ratio (did so using the numbers in V15).

Do others see this as well or perhaps I have a bad install? I'm not in my office today due to the holiday.

You can type in .9097. Vegas Pro 16 has removed all SD templates. Go to File - New and you will see there are no longer any SD templates listed there either.

I kinda understand the templates since delivering to SD is pretty phased out at this point but using SD sources is still very much alive.

 

Is there a way to add/save the .9097 PAR value (and others) or must I remember or look them up each time? I think it's silly if they've actually been removed on purprose due to SD being too old now. The format is still supported by the software. I need a way to properly have the software present the clips at times and that requires adjusting that field.

Anyway if anyone official reads this and if those 2 PAR values were pulled by mistake or could be re-added for those with dodgy memories like myself it'd be appreciated.

See your Project properties, Custom template and/or event projecties, Media if you choose "Yes" in the pop-up window (or "Match Media Video Settings" in Project properties template)?

From online help (F1), Setting project properties, Video

From one of my saved Custom templates (which I got after importing the media file)

We added the missing aspect ratios back to the dropdown in the project properties. We did not do this for the media properties at this point. Hopefully we will have that back in a future update. The old SD templates, though, are not likely to come back.
