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

Question

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...)

 

Cordially,

-Gary

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.
