Aspect Ratio Not Working With Iphone Video - Split From Thread From A Different Software Version

Question

I have been trying to work through a similiar problem. For several years, I have been putting together family video clips where ever I found them. Nothing fancy, mind you, just trying to preserve them in some sort of order. A few weeks ago I finished my 6th DVD, played it on the tv, only to discover that the videos my wife made with her iphone played on the tv as a very small picture with very wide borders on either side. I have not encountered this problem in the past. I have tried the right-click aspect ratio adjustment, but the results are the same. I may not be doing it correctly. The borders don't really bother me, but I would like a video picture large enough to see. I am using Roxio 2012 Pro. I am not the most tech-savvy person around, but I would like to make a decent DVD for the family to enjoy. Any suggestions?

Just a quick guess, does the video fit the screen from top to bottom? In which case, they were taken in "portrait" mode. Teach your wife to hold the phone horizontally, so that the video matches 1) the way our eyes see, and 2) the way our TVs (and videos) are oriented.

 

The only thing you can do is to crop it and stretch it.

That's what I thought. too. I've bee playing with it using a different DVD Creator (Wondershare) and I believe I can make it better than it is now. Thanks for the help.

Have you noticed in newscasts the (annoying) practice of showing the phone video with blurred duplicates running on the sides :wacko:

 

The majority of phones shoot in HD (16:9) so when you rotate it, you will never get it to fit without some major cutoffs... I would insert a color panel or simplified still picture, then add the portrait mode clip as an overlay ;)

Yep... I've commented on that to my wife. I'd just as soon have black bars on the sides. The blurred image is just distracting. But, to someone there, that must seem like, "dead air", so, "we have to 'fix' that."
