Fix The Squish



3 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

How do fix a screwed up frame ratio?

I get dvds from the UK that are recorded off digital TV but the video is 'crunched" in from the sides.


What are you trying to do with the DVDs -- simply play them or are you copying or editing them? What Roxio application are you using? No not the Suite, the particular application (one of about 32 of them.)


Where are you trying to play the videos - computer or TV?

Could be as simple as you have a 4:3 source being watched on a 16:9 device.

Nope, one of DVD players has a 16:9 ratio selection and 2 other ratio choices.

None of the choices changes the "squish".


Everything I play the disc on (computer, DVD, etc. all looks "squished".

I want to re-burn the file to a DVD so it looks normal.


Anyway, after I posted this thread, I did manage to figure out that by using VIDEOWAVE , I could put the video file

over a black background as an "overlay".

This allowed me to adjust the frame ratio.


This took many, many hours to render, but it did work.


Thanks guys; maybe we can figure out a faster way to do this? :)
