I was given an mpeg video file (created in Apple Final Cut Studio - Motion) and asked to copy it to DVD to it can be played from a standard DVD player on a large widescreen LCD (Dell 37"). It's a video presentation.
The mpeg file resolution is 1280 X 720, and when played on my PC looks fine.
I've tried using Nero Vision and TMPGEnc tools, but when I play the DVD through the player onto the widescreen LCD it is not showing up correctly. The sides of the video are cut off, and I cannot manage to figure out how to get the entire video to appear on the screen correctly.
I've adjusted the DVD player settings to 4:3 and 16:9. Doesn't help. I've adjusted the display properties. Doesn't help. I've used just about every setting I can find in Nero Vision and TMPGEnc and have made some progress, but the sides are still cut off.
I don't know a lot about video, but what are "safe areas"? Could it be that this video created in motion is outside the safe areas for TV's? Like I said, it looks perfect on my PC LCD. Why would it not look perfect on the 37" LCD from DVD?
Anyone have any suggestions?
