View Full Version : Squeeze Mode Help!

06-23-2005, 03:29 AM
I shot a project in the DVX's squeeze mode and now I need to author it to DVD.

What do I need to do to get the DVD to play back in 16:9 on a 16:9 TV and play back Letterboxed on a 4:3 TV?

Thanks! :cry:

Just set the project properties to Widescreen and render as such (aspect ratio 1.2121). The playback system should take care of the rest.

Author it as a 16x9 DVD. The DVD player will automatically letterbox it for 4:3 TVs.

Thanks for the replys guys.

Barry, thats exactly what I did so far. I leave the footage in native 720x480 squeeze mode, then author it that way with Sonic ReelDVD also making sure to check off the 16:9 aspect box in the project settings. On a 16:9 television it plays back perfectly as intended. But on a 4:3 TV its still squeezed... even after manually setting the DVD player to 4:3 letterbox mode. Any other ideas?


Hey Edalgo!

Finally I run into someone from around here! :)
