I am experiencing a problem converting a 720 x 480 mpg video to avi. The problem seems to be some kind of math error in the calculation of resolution ratios.
I note on the Cropping Settings screen that the resolution is correctly being reported as 720 x 480, but that the ratio is INCORRECTLY calculated as 0.89:1. It should be 1.5:1 or 3:2.
In the Conversion Settings menu, the best resolution I am offered is 416 x 480 (cropped down from 440 x 480, I guess). At any rate, the highest resolution ratio I am offered is about 0.89, nothing near 1.5.
The resulting image has two large black bars top and bottom, which prevent it from being zoomed to fit the screen.
The biggest problem here is not mine, but if the program is making this kind of error here, which seems pretty simple-minded, it looks like there is a greater problem in the algorithm’s logic.
Anybody else seeing this problem? Got Help?
