I am putting AVIs to DVD format using DVD2SVCD w/ D2SRoba, CCE etc basically using the DivX>DVD Thread.
After countless articles, tests, articles and more tests I have one thing I cant get through.
Im wanting to make Anamorphic 16:9 discs as to play back on 4:3 TV now and also 16:9 TV in the future when i can afford to upgrade, and I read that the actuall image on such a disc is 33% larger verticaly, which is understood, and my DVD player also understands so automaticaly reduces the vert by 33% on my 4:3 cause i tell it so in menu options. Obviously in the future on my brandnew 16:9 the image will be stretched 33% horizontaly as to fit the screen.
Now, if i play my original Pirates of the Caribean in the DVD i can see the top and bottom bars as part of the picture and also another set of bars above and below the image. Im assuming this is the DVD doing its work in the 33% anamorphic reduction situation.
What do I need to do to get my burnt disc to do the same? because the DVD player doesnt seem to understand thats what im trying to replicate. Is there a code of sorts to let it know on the lead-in of a disc??? or am i blind to something that is pre-burn related??? and yes i am selecting “Anamorphic (16:9…)” in DVD2SVCD.
Sorry for the ramble, but with all the 4:3s, 16:9s, 740x480s, 2.35s etc etc im on overload!!! I can do everything else i want but i demand perfection and this is the only way to that higher status!
If anyone can help or wants to ask anything, please do.
