Aspect Ratio?


zinck
 Share

Question

I have two more questions:

 

1. Is it best to burn the DVD in 4:3 or 16:9?

A friend told me that she uses 4:3 and it does well for normal screen and wide screen.

 

2. When I go to Aspect Ratio Handling in the clip it states that the Source is 4:3.

Do I have an option of changing the source ratio?

 

Thanks again!

Think about what you are asking. Some of it is difficult to understand but take a little time to think.

 

How would you change the ratio of the source? If you are trying to burn a video project from A captured VHS or from a camcorder whose native format is 4:3, what are you going to do --Physically stretch out the VHS tape or squash the camcorder so that it changes the shape of the SOURCE.

 

Ask your friend about side bars and how the 4:3 looks on a wide screen. If you have a wide screen TV, use your remote to change the ration display to 4;3. That is how it is going to look.

I really do appreciate the help!!

As you can see I am VERY new at this.

I too wondered how the source could be changed.

So the final answer to all of this is that I will burn my DVD in 4:3 format.
