Using Nero Vision 188.8.131.52 I created a slide show from pictures and burned it to a DVD. With an aspect ratio of 4:3 and NTSC. When I play the DVD in my DVD player and watch it on my TV, some of the left and right side of the pictures are chopped off. But if I play the DVD on my computer, everything is OK, the sides are not chopped off. I understand this is due a thing called “overscan” and it’s normal, the TV chops 5-10% called overscan. One solution maybe to add a black border to your pictures or videos.
My questions are:
Is there a way in Nero Vision to add a 5% black border to my DVD? If not, is there another program that can do this for me?
Is there a quick way or program to add a black border to 500 pictures that are in jpg format. This would take forever to do by editing one at a time.
Anyone have any other ideas or solutions.
Now that I know about “overscan” I am amazed that DVD movie making software does not have a FIX OVERSCAN feature to add black borders. Aren’t most DVD’s going to be viewed on TVs?
