Burning Via Toast 8, 720x480 Clip Won't Scale To The Screen Ratio


Warner Brown

Question

I have a 720 by 480 quicktime movie clip NTSC (widescreen) 1.02 GB

 

I have tried burning this on IDVD 6 but there is a black bar/space on the right side.

 

This black bar displays also when I play the burned dvd on my powerbook & TV. Whether or not I burn it set to 4:3 or 16:9, I get the same thing.

 

So..I tryed burning the quicktime .mov file on Toast 8, I get the same thing, whether it's set to 4:3, 16:9 or automatic, only now theirs always a black bar on the bottom also.

 

The film is there, it's just not filling up the screen fully.of course Toast 8 has limited options, it by default doesn't scale though it should conform to the resolution. you would atleast think with a standard 720x480 quicktime clip.!!?

 

I have quicktime Pro, I tried resizing it in there to a higher resolution to see if that would make a difference, but it's still the same. in Idvd and Toast.

 

I thought maybe it was because I'm doing final authoring in Quicktime Pro, might have something to do with it so I'm exporting a mov file via that to see if it will make a difference. (I don't have the original session available)

 

Guys, this problem is really beginning to f**king frustrate me. I have this film I have to send to a filmfest in NYC soon.

Any help or suggestions would be really cool and very appreciated.

 

thanks,

 

Warner

If this is a 16:9 movie then you must be seeing it vertically stretched at 4:3. Is that correct? In that case you probably need to use MyDVDEdit to change the IFO settings in the VIDEO_TS folder. My brother shoots video using an anamorphic lens and that's what he needs to do. Let me know if this is your situation and I'll explain the steps.

 

Thanks, I tried myDVDedit. The settings didn't change anything, but I resolved the problem. The clip was showing as 720x480 but was really 853x480, which is silly because even if it were 853 wide it still shouldn't "shrink" so I exported it as a high quality 720x480 in QT pro, and now it seems to fit in the preview and is burning. Think the problem is solved. Thanks for the helpful reply though, that's not a bad little program.
