Wrong aspect ratio when copying blu-ray to DVD

vbimport

#1

When I choose the copy Blu-ray to DVD option (DVDFAB 9.2.1.0), I get no choice over the aspect ratio or the resolution of the DVD.

The Blu-Ray is full HD (1920x1080) 25fps interlaced. This is not a commercial Blu-ray disc, it’s one of my own that I authored awhile back, but want to make a DVD copy of it.

The preview window in DVDfab shows the correct aspect ratio, but when I view the output from DVDfab, it’s always 720x480. As my TV standard is PAL, it should be 720x576. The consequence is I have a vertically compressed letterbox image rather than a full frame one on playback.

Does anyone know how I correct this?


#2

Are you sure your TV is properly set up to display this? It all gets scaled to the TVs native resolution.


#3

It’s not the TV. The actual resolution of the video in the VOB file is 720x480. DVDfab should be asking what TV standard the DVD should be created to. I’ve since tested a few commercial blu-ray discs on two different PC installations. Results are always the same.


#4

If DVDFab isn’t getting the job done for you, I suggest that you make an mkv of your authored movie and then use that file with AVStoDVD to author your DVD with standard PAL resolution.


#5

The BD to DVD module in DVDFab does not currently produce PAL output, but it will duplicate the frame rate of the Source, which with BDs is often an NTSC rate in any event. I have had some discussions with the staff about improving the DVD output in this module and in DVD Creator as well for PAL users. It is on the “to-do” list and has not been forgotten. There have been other requests for this as well.

If you still have a DVDFab internal log session from one of these conversions, please attach it to a new post.
