Is there a way to lock the aspect ratio for a Catalog item image?

I started off trying to use a catalog to display images instead of having to drag them directly onto the timeline and then change the duration of each one. No matter what I did, catalog distorted and changed the aspect ratio of my 1024x768 images even if I made the channel exactly 1024x768 or larger. I am currently placing images directly on the timeline and it is very time consuming.

I am looking for an answer to this as well because I don't understand why every image is being distorted regardless of image and channel size.

For background, I am playing using the Android player on Android 4.4.2 on a 1920x1080 display output.

we will be adding maintain aspect ratio to catalog.
one thing you can do, is add resources to scenes, mark the resource with maintain aspect ratio in the scene, and add the scene to the catalog. Long process, but workaround.
