View Full Version : 4:3 to 16:9 for DVD

Here is the situation. I shoot with a DVC 80 which will shoot 4:3 or 4:3 letterboxed. I'm thinking about offering clients 16:9 DVDs. I edit in LE 5.62, but prefer to author DVDs with another program. I have outputted my mpeg files from LE in both 4:3 and 16:9. I then authored a 4:3 and a 16:9 DVD. What I noticed is that on my 16:9 tv, the 4:3 didn't look any different then the 16:9. Meaning, the 4:3 footage encoded to 16:9, didn't look any different played back on the tv. Is there something that I can do to get a little better 16:9 output on LE using 4:3 footage? I hope this is not too confusing. What I'm looking for is any insite without going through another program if possible.
