ConvertXtoDVD Widescreen Question

#1

I’m having a problem with one of my video files being to wide (is what I suspect). It is not the standard 16:9 aspect ratio, it is much wider. Is there a way I can make it come out the same as the video files aspect ratio?

In properties this is the pixels of the video:

Width: 656
Length:272

ConvertXToDVD converts everything to either PAL or NTSC levels and using an aspect ratio of 4:3 or 16:9. You can set this in the options menu.

I do believe the automatic setting will check if the source is 16:9 or 4:3 and keeps that same setting, but i’m not sure. You could try the automatic setting.

Automatic setting uses 4:3 if AR is 4:3, all other are converted to 16:9.

Well, let’s see:
The videos I’m converting are in 16:9 format, NTSC.
My TV is 4:3 format, NTSC or PAL. Shall I use any special setting at ConvertXDVD?

Thanks in advance.

Best setting on CxD is “automatic”.
Then movie will always have correct AR.

You must set your DVD player to send 4:3 Letterbox - not 4:3 Pan&Scan.
