  1. I just burned a video that I got off Youtube. I attached a screen capture of the video. The horizontal is fine but the vertical is squashed down. The aspect ratio doesn't help the vertical when the video is played on laptop with VLC media player. The video also plays this way on the DVD player attached to the tv. The sound is fine and in sync with the video. How do I stretch out the vertical on the video? Steve
  2. My movie is 16:9. I have my preferences in Toast set to Automatic. When I view the burned Blu-ray, the sides are cropped. Not to 4:3, but enough that I have a wide shot and the 2 people on each end are missing! What does the "Show All" function do? Anyone know?
  3. I have a couple of 1080p MP4 files with are "old" films, so they are 4:3 aspect ratio. The native resolution of the MP4s is 1236 x 928 pixels. When I play the MP4 files in a video player (like QuickTime Player), they are displayed pillarboxed in a 16:9 (the proper 4:3 video is in the middle with black bars on the side). I wanted to burn them onto a blu-ray disc, so I did the "drag-n-drop" into the "video" window (with "blu-ray video" selected). There were absolutely no options/buttons to allow me to specify an aspect ratio, but I assumed that Toast would give me a disc with the same thing I saw in the QuickTime player. Imagine my surprise, then, when I put the finished disc into my blu-ray player and instead of pillarboxed video (which is what I should have), I instead get a disc where the original 4:3 video has been artificially stretched to fill the full 16:9 frame! Can somebody explain why Toast is doing this? I do not like it and I see no options within toast to force it to respect the original aspect ratio for blu-ray. Going back to the Toast window, If I click on the "edit" button and look at the video file in the 'player' (where you can set the button picture), the image is still properly pillarboxed in the frame, so it 'looks' right there, it just doesn't turn out right when Toast does the actual encoding/burning. On the right side of the edit window, it shows JVT/AVC Coding, 1440x1080, 23.98fps, MPEG-4 Audio. I know 1440x1080 is the full 16:9 canvas, so maybe it's something in the encoding that is stripping out the pillarboxes (or not correctly adding them)? If there's no way to fix this in Toast, is there some sort of program I can download for the Mac that can "force" pillarboxes onto these titles before burning in Toast? I don't want to waste any more valuable BD-R discs on this, and if there's no fix, I feel really stupid for buying the blu-ray plug-in when I could have gone and bought a different BD authoring program instead. I've attached photos showing the correct pillarboxed image (from Toast's "edit" window), and the incorrect stretched image from the burnt blu-ray.
  4. I'm new to Toast and hoping it will replace iDVD as my creator of choice. Having tried burning some movies I've found it hard to get a resolution that is equivalent to the original file. Also, it seems to find it hard to keep the aspect ratio of the film. The online help section in the software takes me to a dead page on the site. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I have just bought the game capture hd pro and i am having a problem with black bars appearing at both the top, bottom and sides of my videos. The video source is a pc set to a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The signal is passing through fine and the roxio software is capturing no problem (apart from black bars). The video quality slider is all the way to the right at it's maximum setting, format is set as M2TS (for some reason this is the only option) When I go to tools -> options the profile is set at "HD 1080P", video bitrate is "1500" kbps. When I put the recording software in full screen mode I see the black bars, I also see them when I play the captured video in vlc player. I don't see any other settings that could affect this, does anyone know how to fix it? I could fix it in editing (I use sony vegas, but I'd rather be capturing at optimal resolution and not loosing quality to black bars). Attached is a screenshot of video captured with the card (I'm recording on a different computer to the source one, that's why roxio software isn't visible.)
  6. I am using Titanium 11.1. I'm trying to import a HD signal from a DirecTv HD44/500 receiver using composite outputs and converting signal through a Canopus ADVC 110 and firewire into a mac. The 16x9 input signal is changed to 4x3. I've tried changing settings on the Directv receiver also setting in toast but nothing seems to help. Is there a fix for this. Thank you
  7. I'm trying to edit an anamorphic 720x480 video file (you can download a sample file by going to the page at then right-clicking and selecting save target as). Even if I start with a 16x9 project, when I add the file to the project it is treated as a standard 4x3 file, not an anamorphic 4x3 file. Players like VLC see the file as anamorphic and play the file correctly, so it appears that Videowave is ignoring something in the file. Background: The source material is from component video output (the only source available) and is ALWAYS in anamorphic 720x480 format. I now have hundreds of hours of material and continue to create additional material. Questions: Is there some way for me to tell Videowave that the file is an anamorphic 720x480 file providing a 16x9 image rather than a standard 720x480 file providing a 4x3 image? (if so, please provide step-by-step instructions) Is there some way to get Videowave to horizontally stretch the 720x480 image into 16x9 so that the original 16x9 aspect ratio is not lost when combining it in a video production containing other 16x9 material? (if so, please provide step-by-step instructions) If Videowave cannot perform the above functions, is there another product which can? Thanks! John
  8.
