Burn it as a 4:3 video, and set your set top DVD player to 4:3.

Thanks. So roxio won't burn a 16:9 with the bars on a 4:3? Seems strange to me that it won't so you can just play it on widescreen equipment. Seems like it would be such a simple thing to build into the program.

You have me totally confused, here, which isn't all that hard to do. :)

 

I read your first post as trying to get a 4:3 video to look 4:3 on a widescreen TV. What are you really saying?

I am talking about a 4:3 video that I edit with videowave output it from there to my hard drive and then burn with my dvd. I would like to burn it with the side bars as part of the video and have it ready to give to folks that have widescreen tv. I would also do it in the regular 4:3 format for those that don't have widescreen.

LOL, and sometimes I don't even understand myself.

4:3 & 16:9 take care of themselves, you don't have to do anything.

 

If it is 4:3 and is played on Widescreen, it got bars! (sides)

 

If it is 16:9 and played on a Regular TV, it got bars! (top & bott)

 

If you put 4:3 video/pics into a new 16:9 production, it will have side bars on both TVs but the picture will be smaller on the regular screen because the bars are now part of the picture.

 

If you watch broadcast TV, some channels bounce around all the time, program in one, and each advertisement in something else.

 

You don't put them on, the TV does!

Thanks!

Little update…

 

I took a 4:3 move and added it to a VW 16:9 project. In VW it has bars on the side.

 

Played on a Wide Screen TV there is no difference between that and a 4:3 project.

 

The difference is when you play it on a regular TV a 4:3 added to a 16:9 VW Project gets black bars on all sides!

Same movie in a 4:3 VW Project

If you are trying to make One Project fit all, it isn't going to work! This is why commercial DVD's that offer Regular and Widescreen use double sided discs. One format on one side, and the other goes on the 2nd side!

 

I got some 2 sided discs 6 years ago, but I think they would be hard to find today…
