Creating 16:9 Movie (not Menu) With Mydvd Express

Question

Hi,

 

I just purchased roxio creator 2009. I have been playing with it for few hours, but don't seem to be able to select creating a 16:9 DVD for playback on 4:3 television.

 

When I burn my 16:9 movie, the playback is compressed. There must be a way to specify that the movie is 16:9 so that if it is played back on a 4:3 screen, black bars are added on top and bottom to show the movie in the correct aspect ratio.

 

Less sophisticated software can do this. I would be very surprised if roxio does not support this feature.

 

Help is appreciated.

Have you selected the 16:9 option under Project Settings?

Problem is that if I choose "Disk Format = DVD without menus", the 16:9 option is not selectable (it is greyed out).

 

I'm not sure what I did though, but the last DVD I burnt played OK. It was not compressed.

 

Cheers

Why not use the proper application for authouring DVDs - myDVD. It has many more features and options; DVD Express is a "dumbed down" program for simple applications.

If the black bars are added to the video, the video would no longer be 16:9, but 4:3 and would then not display correctly on a widescreen TV. Videowave and MyDVD fully support true anamorphic 16:9 which means the black bars are not added. The correct playback depends on your DVD player's settings. Make sure you have your DVD player set correctly.
