Can E-V-To-D Capture Widescreen (16:9) Video?


The definitive (tsantee) reply to:


Picture Size Shrinks - Started by JazzMessenger , Mar 30 2013 09:29 AM


seems to indicate E-V-To-D-for-Mac (1.0.5) ALWAYS captures at 4:3 aspect ratio when set at "High" resolution. This works GREAT for old movies captured from a DVR, but many personally-recorded videos were recorded at the widescreen (16:9) aspect ratio.


Based upon the response to the earlier question, I am guessing that using the "Medium" setting during E-V-To-D-for-Mac recording will avoid the "4:3 Prison" for recordings that were originally recorded in Widescreen (i.e., at 16:9.)


Am I living in a Fool's Paradise, or what?


(P.S. The ROXIO documentation offers NOTHING useful about this topic I am Very Grateful for the comments of tsantee on this thread...)


Me - using E-V-To-D-for-Mac (1.0.5) to capture video on:

Apple MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13" Mid-2010 (MC374LL/A - MacBookPro7,1 - A1278)

running Mac OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)


and all video editing done on:

Apple Mac mini "Core i7" 2.3 (Late 2012) (MD388LL/A - Macmini6,2 - A1347 - 2570)

running Mac OSX 10.9.5 (Mavericks)


(Note: This configuration has experienced No Other Problems while transferring many videos, other than the obnoxious Black Bars on either end of the widescreen videos...)

The device is not capable of creating an anamorphic 16:9 video. If your source is widescreen it will create a letterboxed video in a 4:3 frame.
