Aspect ratio

Is it possible to copy a DVD movie and change the aspect ratio? If so, what software do I need. I want to go from 2.35 to 1.85 if possible.

I’m not sure @100%, but maybe you need to re-encode the entire movie with a mpeg encoder like TMPGEnc.

Maybe DVD Rebuilder can do this, but I’m not sure.

Sure you can, but you’ll be losing a portion of the left and right side of picture if you try to eliminate top and bottom black borders. This will require encoding and you will lose some quality. Similar topics were found here:

why don’t you buy tv or dvdplayer with zoom capability? rather than destroy vision of director/cinematographer.

changing AR is not so simple, you can’t just set conversion from 2,35:1 to 1,85:1
