Widescreen Tv

Question

Is there anyway that photoshow5 can set the aspect size when burning a dvd to work on a widescreen 16.9 tv. Yes i can change the tv aspect to 4.3 but then you have 2 black borders down the side, and as you know when you increase to 16.9 the photo becomes squat . When you go to the MAKE tab in photoshow it shows the" DVD and CD Rom" a widescreen tv with 2 boys in it ?

Surely i have got the wrong set up loaded, Thanks for any input

PhotoShow 5 creates standard NTSC DVDs. The video will be in the 4:3 aspect ratio (720x480 pixels). Many HD TVs place black bars on the sides of a 4:3 image to avoid distortion.

 

In general, PhotoShows are designed to be displayed in a 4:3 frame online, in the program and on DVD.

 

All well and good, but with HD tvs pretty much a universal standard now, you would think Roxio could do a quick patch and at least give us the option of burning to a 16:9 format so that pictures and videos are not distorted so much, and at least fill the screen of a widescreen tv without black bars. I am not sure you can even still buy 4:3 screens any more, and if you can, you soon wont be able to. Give us 16:9 support Roxio!

PhotoShow 5 was released in February 2007 when NTSC DVDs were still the standard.

 

We hope to add this feature in the future.

Hey, sounds good.

 

So, will adding 16:9 functionality be an update to PS5 or a brand new version we will have to pay for?

 

Also, is 'the future' likely to be the near future or just sometime in the future?

 

 

Thanks

This will be a feature in a new version of PhotoShow. There is no information on when this will be implemented. However, it is in development.
