Stretched photos from Toast 10

Question

Hi

 

I am really enjoying using Toast and its ability to make to burn HD material onto an AVC HD DVD disc to play on a Blu Ray player. But when I add photos to a project so that I have a slide show, the photos are stretched horizontally (the video part of the project is fine). On my first try, the photos were in their original 3:2 format. So I thought I'd make 16:9 crops of the photos and try again but they are still stretching when I play them. The thumbnails render OK. It's as if there's a conflict with the pixel aspect ratio of the photos. I know I could create an HD photo slide show with Fotomagico and add that to the project instead, but I don't like the way it compresses the video, whenever there's a dissolve between the photos there are artifacts.

 

Can anyboy shed any light on what I'm doing wrong?

 

thanks in advance

I haven't experimented with Blu-ray slide shows so I'm just guessing at this point. Do you have Automatic set for the aspect ratio in the Custom Encoder Settings window? That's the way it is by default but if it was changed to force 16:9 that might be an issue. What is the resolution of your photos? I'll do some testing of my own.

Thanks for your prompt reply

 

I initially had automatic set for the aspect ratio but changed it to 16:9, this didn't help. The pixel dimentions of the 16:9 crops varied but were typically something like 3496 × 1966 - whatever each photo was, the pixel dimentions always added up to a 16:9 shape

I have just tried a slide show on to a standard DVD settings using DVD project type photos are fine, so it looks like there might be issues when doing it as a Blu Ray project
