Hello everyone. This is my first post. I hope I am not covering old territory, but I searched thru quite a few posts and did not see anything that directly related to my issue.
I am trying to copy all 26 episodes of Neon Genesis: Evangelion to DVD. I own them as high quality .avis.
I am doing all of this on a G5.
I convert the .avis to a DVD-ready mpeg format using ffmpegx.
I burn the DVDs using Toast. I can fit up to 8 episodes on one standard DVD. The compression is apparent when there is fast motion on-screen, but I think this is the best quality I can with .avis as my orginal source.
Here is the problem: the subtitles fall off the bottom edge of my screen. My assumption is that this is not an error in the conversion/burning process, but a function of my old television.
Either way, I need to figure out how to add black to the bottom of the picture so that the subtitles will be bumped up and viewable on my television.
Thanks for your time!
