Top cut off

Recommended Posts

I am making a DVD of old pictures and there are several of the old pictures where the persons head is at the very top of the picture (bad photography!!). I have made the DVD and it plays fine, BUT it does not display the full picture. When viewing on a TV, the top of their head is cut off.... about half of their foreheads and up is gone.

 

When previewing the video in Creator 6 before I burn it, it looks fine, and when playing it on the computer after I burn it, it looks fine, but when playing on my home DVD player and TV, the top is cut off. Of course the first thing I assume is a problem with my DVD player or TV.... BUT I have tried MANY different DVD players and TV's all with the same result. I have tried it on old TV's and new HD TV's... cheap DVD players and VERY expensive ones... still the same results on all of them... the top is cut off.

 

I hope there is a simple fix.... anyone have any ideas???

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

What you are seeing is called Overscan and is common to all TVs to some degree. Here is a discussion on that subject

THANK YOU!!!! It's great to know I was not doing anything wrong.... but it's a pain that I have spent the better part of two days trying to find out what was wrong with my DVD burning software, when that was not the problem!!! Anyway, thanks for the info and the link, that helped a LOT!!!
